Biography / RICH THORNE

Rich Thorne is a multidisciplinary British artist, living and working in Bristol.
Emerging from the UK Graffiti scene under the pseudonym ‘Richt’, the artist
works in the realm of design, animation and on the streets. With a ‘feast or
famine’ approach to color, Thorne’s aesthetic shifts between monochromatic
minimalism and vivid saturation.

Flowers were used as symbols in protest movements, from Sophie Scholl
to the flower-power era of the 1960s. The flower remains one of the most
symbolic images to join significant moments of societal transition. In times of
war, protest, celebration, life and death. Drawing inspiration from the old
world of print media and comic books, this floral facsimile feels more like a
digital icon than an organic product of nature.
