Masters represents the typical streets of South Korea and the United States on paper, as well as the landscape of the countryside by using pencils and graphite. His work gives audiences a feeling of seeing old black and white photographs and reveals the liveliness of the city itself. The drawing continues to clearly portray his visions in personal ways and incorporates his emotions on a subject and he creates all his work in distinctive ways onto the canvas. His delicate pencil-strokes are so refined that it is incomparable to any other works of art and every single line looks as if it is vibrating.
Richard Masters is a contemporary realism artist based in New York City. He studied design and drawing at the University of Iowa, graduating with a Master of Fine Arts degree and he was also professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, where he previously served as Professor of Art for 19 years. In the field of design, the United States Treasury Department has credited Masters with 19 coin designs and five medal designs through his work with the United States Mint. He continues his artistic journey with his wonderful artist wife in NYC.

Masters는 연필과 그라파이를 사용하여 한국과 미국의 전형적인 길거리 혹은 골목의 모습을 페이퍼에 그대로 묘사한 작품을 이번 전시에서 선보입니다. 그의 작품은 마치 흑백 사진을 보는 것처럼 드로잉 안에 그려져 있는 풍경이 생동감을 보여줄 뿐 만 아니라 그의 섬세한 연필의 터치가 정제된 느낌을 주며 그 선의 하나하나가 마치 살아서 움직이는 듯 한 느낌을 준다. 이번 드로잉 전시를 통해 Masters가 느끼는 한국과 미국의 풍경 모습이 어떠한지 더욱더 생생하게 느낄 수 있을 것 입니다.
