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.
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.
