About our art and featured artist:
We wanted to have a theatrical theme to our bed and breakfast, more specifically, a ballet and dance theme. We considered a great many works of art, both old and modern, which had theatrical themes, and in the end we have selected the work of Richard Young to be featured.
Richard Young was born in Yorkshire, UK in 1961, and currently has his studio and his home in North Devon, UK. Richard artistic talent was recognized at an early age, and he began painting in oils when he was 12. He has developed his own style and technique, often using only a knife to create his paintings. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society for Arts, and is also a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild, the Design and Artists Copyright Society, and the North Devon Arts. Some of his works have received honors in competition, and his works hang in galleries and private collections around the world.
We have selected several of his works from his “Dancers” suite. We felt that Richard’s paintings are consistent with what we are striving to achieve with at Bed & Breakfast Bravo!, and that is to be contemporary and modern and yet preserving a classical elegance. We hope that you will appreciate our selections.
