San Francisco based artist, Richard Colman is known for blending figurative imagery and bold geometry within his artwork. A graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Colman has exhibited his work worldwide, showing in Los Angeles, Denmark, New York, Paris, Japan and Copenhagen. His work explores a variety of mediums from canvas to sculpture, also having spent a considerable amount of his early years in graffiti while he continues to paint murals.
Colman is known for typically using symmetrical compositions to further explore themes of human sexuality, societal hierarchies, life and death. Intricate compositions conceived in vivid color palettes showcase abstracted female figures joined in surreal, geometric arrangements that allow little room for void space. Fluctuating between figuration and abstraction, Colman illustrates dark themes and narratives utilizing bright and vibrant colors.
