Richard StiplPrague, Czech Republic, 1969
Working initially as a painter, Stipl has recently turned to making sculpture. Considered an exceptional talent in technical terms, Stipl stands apart from his contemporaries through his uncanny ability to breathe a vital and invigorating “life force” into his art works, regardless of media. Stipl’s disturbing imagery has beguiled the hearts of many institutions and collections around the world, such as the Eczacibasi Collection and the Glenn Close Collection, among many others. Stipl has shown at the Flash Art Prague Biennale 6 and at the Kunsten Museum of Art in Denmark. He also works with Galerie Dukan in Paris and the Enrique Guerrera Galleria in Mexico.
