Bio

RICHARD SHELTON is an artist whose career spans the last five decades.

Primarily a painter, his work bridges to literature as well. His writings include poems, short novels, essays and commentary on Art and Art history.

Richard Shelton's artwork is in the Smithsonian Art Institute's Hirshhorn Museum and other Museums in the United States. For over four decades Richard Shelton has used the human figure to express his observations about the world and the times in which we live. By using the average American as the subject, Shelton probes issues of alienation, the insidious ascendancy of corporate culture, and the minefield of gender politics.

 

Throughout his career, Shelton has pursued painting with an unswerving concern to portray the underlying motives of our actions. The ongoing development of his painting technique as well as his perfection of figurative painting set him apart from artists who discard the more rigorous principles of art making.

His poetry and stories can be found in the following publications: Willard & Maple, The Chaffin Journal, Down in the Dirt, The Poet's Haven, The Eclectic Muse, Pulse Literary Journal, Languageandculture.net, and  Stepping Stone Magazine
