Creatabot was pleased to award Richard Jeferies with the Creatabot of the year award this week, and in recognition of his work, an exhibition has been organised at Strood library in Kent.
Richard Jeferies is an artist based on the Isle of Sheppey, who believes art is a language we can all use to communicate with each other. He is inspired by many forms of art, from traditional to modern.
The pieces Lure, Ad Astra and Babbage Mk IV (6 No.) were especially made for the exhibition and inspired by Steampunk styles. The piece “Lure” has also won Richard Jeferies the “Creatabot Creative 2012” award.
Richard learned to paint from his father who is an oils artist. His father, who lives in Wales, continues to paint whilst in his 70s. Richard teaches art to various ages and felt that by practicing different artistic techniques, it would help him present his students with a broad range of tools. In turn this helps the students to find the tool that connects with their particular creative spark. Also for him personally it creates the pleasure of discovering new and classic mediums for expression. He continues to pass on his experience and ideas to his own children, who all have their own distinctive styles, and hopes to one day hold a family exhibition.
The exhibition of his work will run from the 1st of December 2012 to the 4th January 2013 at:
32 Bryant Road
Telephone: 01634 335890
