The philosophical surrealist art of Richie Montgomery is highly regarded for its unique twist on life and our perspective of it. The 'hidden in plain sight' details of his work are ruminants of the great masters like M.C. Escher and Salvador Dali. His work takes an extraordinary amount of time to complete and is sure to keep you asking questions forever. The more you look into his art the more you will see, the details are quite mind blowing. Here is his story:
I am Richie Montgomery, an artist in Cambridge MA. who specializes in hand drawn Pen and Ink surrealistic themed art. I have been drawing my entire life and have had no formal training other than just my own desire to create from the time I could hold a crayon or pencil. I enjoy many different types of art yet surrealism holds my passion the most.
I get my inspiration from my many travels throughout the country while living life as homeless alcoholic train-hopping and hitchhiking to get around, my strange view of the world and the strange quirky nature that I have on life. I gained sobriety and with that change in my life, I gained a whole new perspective. While begging for money in Harvard Square, I met a woman who finally gave me a reason to actually live, instead of spending my life chasing the next beer, God sent her to me and now I am living my dream. I have settled down and finally had and took a chance to actually do something with my life besides drink, I decided to pursue my art. I spend an enormous amount of time drawing each and every fantastic detail and enjoy every line and dot that fills the paper. With a grateful heart, a loving soul, and an open mind, I present to you ElectricKoolAid Art.
I hope this gives you some idea as to who I am and what I'm about. Thank you for your curiosity and business.
