Exhibition: ´Pens and Watercolour Scenes of Croydon´ by Nick Richards
September 20, 2016-October 29, 2016
We are really excited to announce artist and painter Nick Richards will be exhibiting at Matthews Yard in the art gallery from September 20th – October 29th.
Originally from Liverpool and having studied Illustration at Kent Institute of Art & Design, Richards graduated in 1992. Inspired by unusual buildings and architecture, Nick Richards tries to capture the personality of a building, almost as if he were drawing its portrait. He regularly sketches on location around London or on his travels, focusing mainly on historic buildings. He works mostly in pen, ink and watercolour.
Richards also likes to draw and paint portraits of people in oil on canvas, and regularly attends life drawing events all over London.
