The Easel

Daniel Richter in five works

Richter was designing record covers and posters before a belated burst of study led him to discover painting. “Hugely influential” according to one critic, Richter’s work is being featured for the first time at a London public gallery. He often draws inspiration from photos in the media to which he adds his own political commentary, sometimes giving a sense of the “retired anarchist”. An interview with Richter (28 min) is here.
