Richard was born to a family of artists. He knew from an early age that art was his calling, and has striven to make that his life. He graduated with BSc with Honours from the University of Toronto double majoring in Clinical Psychology and Philosophy, giving him further insights into the fundamental structure of human perception and art. After years of drawing and painting, he decided to get into tattooing because he wanted to challenge himself and master the ‘final boss’ of traditional mediums. He now splits his time between running an art academy and mastering his tattoo style. Richard specializes in realism, he’s great with colour, and has also loves to work on realistic anime pieces as well.
