Richard Claremont


Master | Instructor | Mentor

My work skirts the boundaries between representation and abstraction, blurring the natural world with the synthetic world…  focusing on the beloved coastline within walking distance from my home in Shellharbour NSW.

Typically a painting will start with some shapes drawn quickly on the back of an envelope. With my paintings, I try not to plan too far ahead… I like the paint to tell its own story… there is something really exciting about waiting to see what’s going to happen next.

My artwork is represented in collections both locally and internationally and I have been a finalist in many major art prizes.

About The Artist

Richard Claremont is an Australian artist who was born in 1965 in Sydney. He attended a Steiner School, which placed a great emphasis on creativity and the development of the child. It was a rich environment that developed a love of drawing with crayons and painting in watercolor.

From 1983-1985 he completed a degree at Sydney College of the Arts, majoring in painting. His work from this time is semi-abstract, continuing the theme of mythology and man’s complex relationship to the world.

Over the last 15 years, Richard has had several exhibitions of his work in both Wollongong and Sydney. His painting from this time examines the impact of mining on the Australian landscape, and much of this work is now on permanent display at Bluescope Steel Visitors Centre at Port Kembla. His interest in painting machinery has now extended to a love of painting classic cars.

Richard is happily married and lives in Shellharbour with a cat, a chicken, and a disabled budgie.
