Richard featured on 'Street Museum of Art' site

The virtual museum project for 'street art' (Street Museum of Art) has made Richard a featured artist. Drawn both to Richard's eye-catching drip work as well has his brash pronouncements on placards near and far, the museum features Richard along with a few dozen other artists. Unlike the vast majority of the other artists who prefer a wall or building for a canvas, Richard, sometimes by necessity (drips respond to gravity), uses the street and sidewalk itself for his backdrops.


Founded in 2012 around the streets of Brooklyn, The Street Museum of Art’s guerrilla curating initiatives re-evaluate the current model for contemporary art museums by exploring the unique relationship these artists share with their urban environments.

Besides the drips, Richard has earned a reputation for his "designated art". Reaching back to 1998, the year of Richard's arrival in New York, the tactic has garnered the attention of the Times and other major publications.  

That is when Mr. Richard moved to Williamsburg from Boston and began roaming the city to make ‘’designated art,’’ as he calls it, by affixing such plaques to sidewalk paraphernalia that strike his fancy. All bear the title ‘’Untitled 1998.’’
