Crimes of Passion

April 3, 2012

In the spring of 2009 nearly 50 of Bristol’s best known and most successful graffiti and street artists invaded the city’s oldest and grandest gallery, the Royal West Of England Academy (RWA).  It was a brave gamble allowing the art to be spray directly onto the walls of the Academy, but a gamble that paid of as record numbers attended and it was hailed as the show of the year.

Here’s a little reminder of what it was all about.

NEW RICHT PRINT – ‘Triangulars’

Hot Off The Press

It is with great pleasure that we bring to you a brand new and exclusive & very small edition print by Richt. His style with its clean lines, often depicting triangles, swans and faces, is fresh and distinctive and this hand pulled screenprint is representative of that.

Available now at www.art-el.co.uk the print is in a very limited edition of 25 with 4 hand coloured ap’s.

There’s no doubt that Richt & the ‘What’ Collective are gaining huge momentum not just in Bristol but far afield. They had their own ‘sell out cell’ at the first 12 Days of Xmas Show in 2007 and stole the show once again in 2008 with their own room, ‘Installations & General Vandalism’. They have also just closed the doors to a show at The Friend & Co Gallery in Bristol.

In 2008 Rich also painted at the second ‘Cans’ festival as well as other Summer events with the like’s of Bristol’s Community Festival and Glostonbury. Richt has also taken part in numerous group shows in both the UK & Europe.

With the ‘What’ boys also painting & creating installations for the prestigious RWA (Royal West of England Academy) as part of the groundbreaking & eagerly anticipated ‘Street Art in Bristol’ exhibition (22nd Mar – 2nd May). We will definitely be seeing a lot more of him in the future, with ’09 shaping nicely on both a personal level also with the ‘WHAT’ crew.

Richt is 27, apparently that is the time in a mans life where his metabolism slows down and he becomes fat.

Richt is watching his weight…………WHAT
