Richard Simmonds is a Wellington based Artist. He is a graduate Bachelor of Fine Arts from Massey University and has completed diplomas from the Learning Connexions and Natcoll. Richards’s paintings and drawings are reminiscent of phases in his personal life story.Revisiting original characters from Star Trek through his artwork he time travels back to where it all started. As Hollywood reinvents Richard restates the original the beginning of a great idea and concept.

Richards’s artwork represents snap shots from his individual timeline but not from a selfish point of view. His work aims to invite the viewer to relive phases when they also first embraced and participated both individually and with classmates, friends or family in a popular television or film culture.

Do you remember Spock in Star Trek? Here, an amazing portrait!

A great event. If you have the chance, don’t miss it, Yareah Magazine friends!
