Richard Levine

Artist Levine completed a three year graphic design and illustration course at Chelsea School of Art. He enjoyed various design work in a holographic design studio and 3d post house before branching out into motion graphics. Levine's art plays with geometrical designs and structures and blocks of colour. His works focus on the topology of iconic images, hovering between representation and abstraction. They are influenced by the Bauhaus, Jan Tschichold, Piet Swart, the Memphis Group, Victor Vasarely and Op Art of the 60s and 70s, but with a definite 21st Century spin. Richard experiments with image making to produce 2d prints which are sometimes transposed into textured objects and patterns to provide a tactile element which plays with light and movement.
