An Introduction to Richard Oliver
Richard Oliver was born in Cilfynydd, South Wales. He studied at Mid-Glamorgan School of Art from 1993 to 1994 before attending the University of the West of England to study Fine Art until 1997. He exhibited across South Wales, and had two solo shows at the Attic Gallery plus solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art, Machynlleth and the Rhondda Heritage Centre.
For some years he was performing internationally as Jamie Oliver, a member of a rock band. This meant he had not been able to paint or exhibit due to touring commitments. Only recently has he found time to return to his painting. See biography
