Who is Richard Phillips?

Richard Phillips is an American artist. He was born in Marblehead, Massachusetts and lives and works in New York City. Phillips is known for his large-scale glossy hyper-realistic paintings, recalling the pictorial style of magazines from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s and reflecting traditions of popular image culture. His paintings represent close-up portraits, predominantly of women from fashion and soft porno magazines, but also persons from the fields of pop music and politics. He says "My pictures involve a kind of wasted beauty - that's always been a thread in my work."

In the second season of The CW network's Gossip Girl in the episode "The Serena Also Rises" one of Phillips' pieces is bought and displayed in the home of Bart and Lilly Bass on the stairwell.

Phillips is represented by Gagosian Gallery in New York and Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin | Paris.
