Richie Culver is a British contemporary artist who grew up in the north east of England in the city of Hull. Richie is proud of his northern heritage and takes a great deal of inspiration from his time growing up in hull, which can clearly be seen in his work. Richie’s work tells stories from his own past experiences and observations from the working class that surrounded him during his youth. Richie’s portfolio is extensive and made up of a combination of photography, large paintings on canvas and sculptures. His paintings are more often than not created using a lick of white paint to set the background. He then paints figures of humans and animals, in a scene, telling a story using a sketchy and abstract style. Each painting adopts Richie’s humorous and sarcastic nature. poking fun at his own life, British politics and stereotypes in society.
"I think it is strange times for sure."
