Maryland born Richard Coleman began his career after graduating from the School of The Museum Of Fine Arts at Boston. In 2002 he was recognized by Shepard Fairey and showed at BLKMRKT Los Angeles with illustration super star Dalek. Coleman’s work has proven introspective and complex. His use of geometric pattern, surrealist elements, and and folk style illustration give the viewer and virtual eyeful vibrant color and spellbinding imagery. Now based in San Francisco Coleman may not spend much time at home; 2010 is packed with group and solo shows world wide. He is currently showing until March 7th at the MAMA Gallery, Rotterdam along side Neu Black fave Jeff Soto.
