Statement

Paul Richmond's paintings have been displayed at venues including the World of Wonder Gallery, A Bitchin’ Space, BoMA: The Bar of Modern Art, and the Columbus Museum of Art. Utilizing a multitude of artistic methodologies, his work explores themes of personal narrative and social commentary, sometimes addressing unique experiences of the GLBTQ community or self-realization and empowerment at large. Richmond's sensitivity to visual communication methods allows for harmonious and inviting pieces with apparent underlying themes, permitting viewers of all origins to make personal connections. 

After graduating from Columbus College of Art and Design in 2002 with a degree in illustration, Richmond worked on children’s books, concert merchandise, a nationally syndicated comic strip, a greeting card line, and a variety of large-scale murals. Only after coming out of the closet shortly thereafter did his fine artwork become a vehicle for exploring and understanding his own journey and developing a dialogue with other members of the GLBTQ community. Since then, he has exhibited his paintings in numerous group and solo exhibitions. His piece “Remembering Tammy Faye” was unveiled to celebrity guests including Cloris Leachman and Ron Jeremy at Tammy Faye Messner's memorial celebration in Palm Springs, and he helped organize a successful benefit for GLBTQ youth in association with his recent solo exhibition “Ins and Outs.” 

He lives with his partner Dennis Niekro and their two whippet babies, Seamus and Una, in the Short North arts district of Columbus, Ohio.
