Richard Maurovic

Richard Maurovic was born in Salisbury, South Australia on 1st September 1963.

Apart from the odd still life, Richard paints locations such as airports, highways, shipping ports and freight terminals that are common in an urban and industrial society.

"Architectural details, industrial design and colourful road signs are placed within the composition to provide an interruption and impact statement or to complement the subject matter so that the viewer is able to see what the artist is seeing. To visit different cities and capture subject matter with fresh eyes gives the locals an opportunity to see their own environs with a totally new focus."

Brightly coloured road signs are an important source of subject material in Richard's work, influenced by Edward Hopper, Jeffrey Smart and the Precisionists

In endeavours away from art, Richard is an accomplished athlete involved in wheelchair sport, specialising in fencing and playing wheelchair rugby. He has represented Australia overseas in both disciplines. He has won numerous awards for his sporting ability and civic pursuits and was named as runner-up for the 1994 South Australian Sports Star of the Year.
