Richard Blunt was born and bred in the West Midlands, Richard has always aspired to be creative. Upon leaving college, frustrated and unsure of his career pathway, Richard turned his mind to music. Whilst spending the next ten years playing in various bands he eventually relocated to Cardiff, South Wales, where he completed a degree in Popular Music and is still based to this day. Predominantly an oil painter, Richard paints traditionally. However, inspiration from film, music and the world around him help form the backbone of his compositions. Obsessed with trying to make a painting tell a story, Richard uses fashion and props from bygone eras to help create his tales of love, life and mystery.
