ART for the Imagination


Richard Bolingbroke

Born in England in 1952, he later travelled to India and lived there for five years on a life-defining journey. He returned to Europe, and then moved to the United States in 1981.

As an artist, his work has embraced many phases and styles. He studied photography and sculpture, and later found a greater interest in painting. He taught himself watercolor while traveling due to its ease of use. It has remained his principal genre ever since.

His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions and his paintings have been selected for many prestigious collections.
