Huw Richard-Evans, My Work and a Demonstration
Born in Pembrokeshire, Huw moved to Bristol in 1980 where he studied fine art before embarking on a career in landscape painting and fashion. He initially built up a reputation as a fashion designer; working with a range of clients including the Celtic Manor Resort, The Shard and Eastern Airways. After lecturing in both Art and Fashion Design, Huw now focuses his talents on his great passion – painting. His career as a painter is now flourishing, with both national and international collectors appreciating his work. Now based in the South West, Huw is represented by galleries in Pembrokeshire, Cardiff and Bristol. His commissions include the RNLI, Bristol University and ITV’s Broadchurch.
Often textural and with a spiritual quality, Huw’s paintings contain drama, passion and energy. For Huw, the painting process is one of great personal joy. “I often start, not knowing where the creative journey will lead me. For me, my emotional response to the piece I am creating takes me on a sometimes unplanned path. Taking risks with a touch of paint and a flick of the brush leads me into exciting unknown territories.”
