Expressive moments to melancholy reflections - Adam Riches
4th June, 2021

Expressive moments to melancholy reflections - Adam Riches

Adam Riches' number one fan is our General Manager Sylwia, so we are super excited to be displaying his work amongst 4 other incredible artists at The Pilgrm this summer in our lounge. Stop by and take a look yourself whilst enjoying a cocktail or two.

Adam is an emerging artist best known for his characteristically stylised portraits and figurative works. He uses both pen on paper and oil on canvas to explore the human psyche and the effects of current issues upon individuals. Riches’ work is usually spontaneous, he starts drawing and the work begins to show itself and uncovers figures, not necessarily known people.

How would you describe your artistic style in 5 words? Monochromatic, happenstance, order, chaos, balance

What was your route into art – is it something you have always loved from an early age, did someone guide you in that direction…? I have vague, early memories of drawing with my father, so it probably started there. 

Where do you draw your inspiration from? I get inspired by photography, painting, literature, but mainly I’m inspired by the process of making the work.

What is your favourite piece of artwork by another artist and why? ‘The Third of May 1808’ by Francisco Goya is a particular favourite of mine.

What would your advice be to young creatives? Persevere with what you’re doing and make sure that people see your work.

You can find out more about Adam via his website - https://adam-riches-artist.myshopify.com/
