Richard Bogusz was born in 1947. His family migrated to Australia and settled in Victoria in 1952. Richard's professional career as an artist has spanned over 40 years. He is a semi- abstract artist and is essentially and deliberately self taught so as not to interfere with his imaginative and creative flow, which is abundant. From late 1970's to mid 1980's the demand for his work had become so high that he found little time for solo exhibitions, preferring to supply select galleries throughout Australia.
In 1986 Richard migrated to Queensland, where he resides still. Living in this climate of extremely bright and sharp colours brought about a major change in his works. He switched to an acrylic medium with which he is able to achieve the vibrancy of colour and spontaneity of composition inspired by this tropical environment. His works are among the most sought after in Australia and people all over the world are fascinated with them. His paintings provoke strong emotional attachment, they are warm, restful and take one's imagination on an amazing and harmonious journey. Richard, in each painting, offers a new perspective of the world that compels the viewer to renew the experience.
