Richard Young is an artist based in the United Kingdom whose paintings have been exhibited in England and Taiwan. The dancers, musicians, and wildlife featured in his works all share one common theme, passion.
Young’s artistic practice focuses all of his efforts on capturing the passion of his subjects. He follows a traditional approach when layering oils, employing a knife to apply raw colors on canvas.
“ I am a self-taught, full time professional Artist, born in Yorkshire, in 1961, and now based in Wokingham, Berkshire, UK where I have my office and studio. Though I have always had a flair for art, I graduated in engineering in 1983 and with a passion to travel, I initially pursued a career as an engineering and design consultant, holding various managerial roles with international design consulting companies, residing primarily in the Middle East.
Nevertheless, an artisan at heart, I returned to Commercial Art in 2003, initially as a semi-professional artist. My engineering and project management background has certainly helped me in the technical, administrative and organisational aspects of my art practice and there is also a noticeable influence in my composition and creativity. ” Richard Young
