About Richard

Richard Geraint Evans is a professional artist and works from his West London studio. Although primarily known for his fine portraiture, Richard also enjoys drawing and painting some of nature's wildest and most beautiful formations – clouds and trees in particular. How we influence and interact with our natural surroundings is constant source of fascination for Richard.

Richard was born in Cardiff but lived most of his early years in Derbyshire. He studied fine art and design for two years at Chesterfield College of Art before successfully completing his degree in art and design at Coventry University. After moving to London Richard studied life drawing and painting at various institutions including St Martin's School of Art. Before becoming a professional artist Richard worked in the advertising and design industries as a successful art director, illustrator and graphic designer.


Richard’s portrait subjects are varied – notable sitters have included Sir Martin Sorrell, Lord Harris and singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé. Richard’s portrait of Emeli Sandé was chosen for exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London, as part of the prestigious BP National Portrait Awards. The same portrait was also featured within the pages of one of Britain’s highest circulation newspapers.

Richard has exhibited his work at numerous locations including the Wolverhampton and Aberdeen city art galleries. Richard is currently planning an exhibition of his 'GPS Tree' drawings in 2018.
