5 Artists | Richard Parr

A spotlight on the top 5 next gen artists from those that know. This week’s Top 5 comes from the award winning architect and designer Richard Parr.


“I picked up on Allan after seeing his painting in the RA Summer exhibition. We began a conversation as I have a fascination with trees and landscapes. I love his immaculately painted work and the and the spectral power of his painting.”

“I work from photographic references most often montaging elements and shifting tones so a ‘place’ doesn’t exist but is created. It is not my intention to then simply translate this source in the process of painting, I wish to achieve a further shift, something present which is unknown, a finished painting I don’t fully understand.” Allan Martin
