Richard Devonshire was born in Hertfordshire, England, in 1965.
Artists have always been among the first to reflect on the culture and technology of their time. Since the 1990’s to the early 21st century, the digital medium has undergone technological developments of unprecedented speed moving from the “digital revolution” into the social media era. UK based artist Richard Devonshire uses cutting edge technology to give a modern interpretation of fine art photography, painting, sculpture and drawing. He is creating a body of work which focuses on nature and its relationship with mathematics."Richard Devonshire was awarded the Gold Medal in the Digital Art category of the Art Folio Award of 2021" Richard’s creative process involves creating textured 3d models, virtual cameras and lighting systems that mimic real world settings and characteristics. While the work suggests a form of photorealism their visual qualities also radically differ from that of photography and lends to a heightened level of detail implying unlimited possibilities.
