Biography

Draughtsmanship and design underpin Richard Maurovic’s painting but for works in pencil he seeks compositions with strong textures and contrasts. As a quadriplegic, Maurovic works with a fine technical pencil strapped to his hand so must achieve his light and shade through a layering technique.

His subject matter covers a vast selection but motifs from his former career as a stockman and his deep interest in all aspects of the food industry are frequent choices. His drawings have a traditional, realistic appearance whereas his paintings are known for their strong, saturated colour.
