About the work
Richard Combes
British, American, b. 1963
Follow

Richard Combes paints New York City through an alternate lens, capturing moments and finding beauty in often-neglected places—looking down at puddles to view the reflections of buildings above, for instance. Trained as an architect, Combes’ paintings display a heightened attention to architectural detail, revealing moments of structural clarity amid urban grit. A self-proclaimed “urban realist,” the artist prefers to “see cities in close-up rather than expansive views,” creating microcosms of a vast urban landscape within something as small as the capital on a subway station pillar. The British-born, New York-based painter was elected a full member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 2004, and cites 18th-century portraiture and Impressionism as his primary inspirations.
