Originally from Woolwich, a popular suburb of South East London, there was no prospect that Ray Richardson would become one of the major figures in British figurative painting. Anchored on the south bank of the Thames, it is there that he finds the material of his work and the subjects of his portraits. In his traditional pictorial technique, he transposes cinematographic techniques specific to the language of "film noir".
