Born in Dublin, Richard Gorman studied at Trinity College and Dun Laoghaire School of Art, where he graduated in Fine Art in 1980. In 1984 he moved to Paris to study lithography and etching at the Atelier Champfleury. His work draws much of its power from the compositional tension between increasingly prominent and boldly simplified irregular blocks on colour. Frequent and extended visits to Japan have notably influenced his working methods and materials.

Richard was elected a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy in 2005, and has won numerous awards including the Palette d’Or at the 1986 Festival International de Peinture.

ダブリンに生まれ、トリニティ・カレッジとダン・ラオガイア美術学校で学び、1980年にファインアート科を卒業。1984年にパリに移り、アトリエ・シャンフルーリーでリトグラフとエッチングを学ぶ。彼の作品は、色彩の上でますます目立つようになり、大胆に単純化された不規則なブロックの間の構成的緊張から多くの力を引き出している。日本への頻繁かつ長期的な訪問は、彼の制作方法と素材に多大な影響を与えた と素材に大きな影響を与えた。
