Richard Esposito

Rich grew up tinkering with mechanics and playing hard at sports. His real love, early on, and to this day, is art. He attended the University of Kansas with a major in art. He began his career working for some of the nation’s top retailers producing graphics for showrooms, displays and photography styling. His innovative talent led to several private commissions, then the formation of his own design firm. Rick’s work in both the cosmetic and textile industries has produced many awards, including acclaim from Revlon, Givenchy, and YSL.

He has traveled extensively and been influenced by the primitive and abstract, and studied under Frank Stella. Rick choreographs his art like a ballet master. He uses color that dances freely, sometimes playful, sometimes precise. Then the images take shape and formation. His format requires patience, precision and imagination.

Rick is an avid reader of mysteries and thrillers, filled with intrigue. He translates that written language into art. He plots his narrative with color, framing his episodes with humor, courage, and surprise. His solution is always the completed canvas.

According to Marc Chagall,” Color is all. When color is right, form is right. Color is everything, color is vibration like music everything is vibration.” Just as Chagall’s work vibrates through a mix of a brightly toned color palette in conjunction with abstracted representations, Rick Esposito’s images sing, pop and bubble as a result of the clear, vivid colors he so readily utilizes. Rick Esposito communicates sheer exuberance throughout his dynamic color usage. While looking towards his past for inspiration, Rick Esposito uses a fresh tonality and an exquisitely clean rendering.
