Cast colored paper pulp paintings
Richard Smith (British, b.1931) was born in Letchworth, Hertfordshire. He attended Luton School of Art and served in the Royal Air Force in Hong Kong. He studied in the master's program at the Royal College of Art in London and was awarded a Harkness Fellowship. He traveled to the United States and spent many years painting and teaching art. He is best known for his paintings and unique approach to creating his pieces.
His style has become quite minimal. He often works with shades of a single color and introduces a second hue only as an accent. In the beginning of his career, Smith worked on stretched canvas.
