RICHARD BOGUSZ

Born in Germany of Polish/German descent in 1947, the family migrated to Australia in 1952 where Richard grew up in rural Victoria. In 1972 Richard was tempted to ‘dip brushes into a stream of paint’. He had begun a gallery titled ‘The Black Pot’ which sold exotic plants & unusual dried arrangements. On the walls were paintings that had been left behind by the previous owners. With continued interest given to these works Richard got the ‘bright idea’ to buy some paints & brushes & create his own. It was at that point that he ‘dipped his toe’ into the flowing stream. Preferring to work alone to ensure his ideas & images were unsullied by outside influences he fled the hectic southern art world in 1986 for an idyllic beachcombers existence north of Townsville. Here he absorbed the vibrant tropical colours that combined well with his imaginative & narrative works. It is over 43 years since Richard made that irrevocable decision to become an artist. He finds himself diving even deeper into his river of ideas to increase & heighten the original dimensions that have always been present in his paintings.

Paul Margocsy - Watercolour.

Paul’s masterful interpretation of birds and mammals is a joy to behold. There are many Wildlife Artists today, but Paul’s dedication to his art puts him in a class of his own. His treatment of the subjects he paints brings them to life and you feel you know them as little personalities. Paul’s paintings are very special and so are their titles, which will invariably give one a quiet chuckle! All animals have a personality – you just have to look for it and in Paul’s paintings you cannot fail to find his wonderful interpretation.
