Richard Schur (b. 1971) studied with Jerry Zeniuk at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, and graduated as "Meisterschüler" in 2000. From 2002 to 2008, he taught painting as Assistant Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. Working as if you could hear the sound of colour, Schur creates visual experiences based on the transcendental qualities of colour. Through a long, systematic and intuitive process, he aims to reflect the meaning of every brushstroke and any detail in his compositions.
