    Artist Richard Scott

    In 2001 Richard Scott forsook his very successful ‘day job’ as technical illustrator-turned-IT specialist to pursue his passion for art full-time. Born in Britain in 1968 but now residing in South Africa, he started drawing at an early age, always scribbling down ideas, but it was to take him almost 30 years to arrive at his vocation of fully fledged artist.

    His work exhibits some characteristics that may be associated with the 1960s Pop Art movement, yet it defies simplistic categorisation, oscillating as it does between naively decorative and super contemporary. Scott’s vision is personal and reflective. Though his images sometimes appear simplistic, they form a complex and coherent whole. Using a variety of painting, sculpture, drawing and graphic media, he borrows images from the world of popular and consumer culture to convey his social, sexual and perceptual messages. Cars, planes, flowers, children, nude women, male genitals, lighthouses and African animals combine to form Scott’s personal iconography. He constantly modifies and reexamines old imagery, but when viewed in terms of ideas rather than chronology, the stylistic cohesion of his work becomes apparent.

    Richard is always passionate about his art, his creative processes and his conceptualisation of ideas, whether he works in sculpture, painting, drawing or graphics. Like numerous other Pop artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami, he values the creative process as highly as the finished product.
