Adam Riches

Artist Bio: Adam Riches is an emerging British painter and draughtsman who primarily works in monochromatic color palette. The characteristically stylized portraits and figurative works he creates are based on a sensitive response to the human condition, ranging from furious expressive moments to poignant, melancholy reflections.

Using both pen on paper and oil on canvas, Riches’ explores the human psyche and delves into the effects of current social and political issues upon individuals, as well as their behavior to one another. The artist is especially interested in people’s frailties and their fallibility – in particular, their potential for extreme behaviour.

‘For the most part, people show the outward appearance of order and civility but underneath that exterior there’s usually something far more interesting happening.’

Riches has taken part in numerous international exhibitions and artist residencies. his works can be found in private collections around the world. The artist currently lives and works in Suffolk, England.
