  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    'A Short History of Milan' began in November 2018 for a special project featuring at the Affordable Art Fair Milan 2019 and the series is ongoing.
    There is a reoccurring linear, structural theme throughout the series, capturing the Milanese use of materials in design such as glass, metal, wood and stone.
    Richard has a strong connection to Northern Italy from printing his books in Verona, and visiting Milan many times to exhibit.
    The work here is a series he has been sketching ideas for for a while, and is his first body of Italian work, capturing the spirit of Milan.
    It sits alongside his street photography work capturing Hong Kong, Vietnam and New York, which depict the fingerprint of cities through colour, fabric and structure with distinct style.

    This artwork is a limited edition of 25 gloss photographic print made in the artist's darkroom.
    It is signed and numbered on reverse accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
    The print is dry-mounted to aluminium, presented in a museum board window mount and a choice of black or white box frame.
    It can be requested unframed or we can offer a consolidated shipping price when buying in multiples.
    This artwork can be purchased in bespoke sizes, just get in touch.

Richard Heeps

United Kingdom Born in: 1965 Emergent Artist

Richard Heeps b. Cambridge, UK, 1965.

Richard Heeps' Seductive, highly saturated colours and sophisticated pictorial structures demonstrate a true love for his subject matter – be it cool, descriptive interiors, still life or landscape. His distinctive style pushes the limits of lens-based photography without the need for digital manipulation. He has exhibited widely in museums and galleries. He has four books and has contributed and featured in many high profile publications.

In 2007 Richard along with photographer Natasha Heidler founded Bleach Box Photography Gallery, a platform that participates in worldwide art fairs. The aim is to show powerful images created without digital manipulation. Working with artists, they produce their work from negative in their Cambridge based darkrooms. They source the best materials to produce high-end fine art pieces, and their artworks are now part of many international collections.

Although I was brought up in East Anglia, I was heavily influenced by America, I visited American bases, I kept magazine cuttings and I followed drag racing. The speed, lifestyle and technicolour is reflected in my imagery. "American" colour is a major aspect to my work, it drives my equipment and material choices. 

At the age of ten I began participating in Art Shows and became comfortable with showing my work and the praise and criticism which is part of an artist's development. In my early paintings Manhattan was a reoccurring theme, I was fascinated with New York.

In my professional career I have been lucky enough to exhibit my work in Museums and Public Galleries since the 1980's. These days I travel exhibiting at International Art Fairs and I still enjoy connecting with my audience, I am driven to create something and see how people respond to it and how they connect to it.
