Born in Munich (1971), Richard Schur studied with Jerry Zeniuk at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich, and graduated as "Meisterschüler" in 2000. As if you could hear the sound of colour, Richard Schur creates visual experiences based on the transcendental qualities of colour. For him Abstraction is a place of collective and personal memories, experiences and emotions. Through a long, systematic and intuitive process, he is aiming to reflect the meaning of every brushstroke and any detail in his compositions. From 2002 to 2008 he taught painting as Assistant Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. Recent solo exhibitions include Highway Song, Galeria Manuel Ojeda, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain (2021); Everything, Kristin Hjellegjerde Galerie Berlin (2020); Metropolis, Galerie Ebbers, Kranenburg, Germany (2018); The Sound of Color, Galerie der Moderne, Stefan Vogdt, Munich (2017), Meadows, Cross Mackenzie Gallery, Washington, DC (2016).
