Alvin Richard is a self-taught realist painter living in Moncton, NB, Canada. His apprenticeship in exploring the medium of acrylics began in 1987. During the process of finding his own voice, he was initially influenced by the realism movement that emerged from the faculty of Fine Arts at Mount Allison University, Sackville, NB.
His knowledge of art history is a perpetual journey of self-study and visiting hundreds of art galleries and museums in Canada, the United States and Europe. Richard was elected to the Federation of Canadian Artists in 2004 as an active member.
His artwork has been shown in more than 90 group exhibitions in Taiwan, across the United States and Canada. Richard’s work can be found in private and corporate collections in France, Taiwan, Australia, the USA and Canada.Download the artist biography
