Richart Pintura was born in 1982 in Saudi Arabia and grew up in Holland, Almere.
As a little kid Richart could easily spend houres at the local library on a search to discover the human anatomy. This created a beautifull start for painting portrets.
Tijdens zijn jeugd in Almere is hij langzaam in aanraking gekomen met de cultuur rondom Hip Hop & Graffiti. Daar is zijn fascinatie begonnen voor de spuitbus en de bijbehorende verrijkende, motiverende en inspirerende levenswijze.
He started painting canvas while he was living 8 years along with his very kind, help needing dad in a caravan on a industrial area in Amsterdam. This tuff way of living got him working more creative with money, materials and time. Richart took his objects to paint from the streets of Amsterdam city centre. Thats some ‘street art’ 2. Till this day he still works his paintings that way ‘RIEZcycle’art.
Richart Pintura worked for alot of years to master the spraycan in a way that resulted in a big collection of paintings. Started painting portrets in a realistic way without the use of stencils or projectors. Pure freehand spraypaint! Now a days he’s exploring the combination of tools, mixed media. Discovering new stylez en techniques. No Art school on his path. His fun in art is all Self thought & inspired by all. He got a great diverse set of styles and paintings. This artist constantly is working different projects; wallpaintings, for businesses & private housing indoors and outdoors paint & design.
He’s feeling honored to have 15 years of experience of doing workshops; Drawing & spraypaint. Over at highschools, university’s, with kids in prison & all other locations he worked & connected with the people.
