Contemporary Paintings

Richard Kulma is a mid-career professional artist based in Melbourne, Australia.

From an early age he was inspired and tutored by his father  the artist Kazimir Jack Kulma.  A thorough grounding in the techniques of painting and sculpture gave him an inevitable direction to pursue art as a career.

Later during his extensive travels he developed and refined his skills as an artist until turning professional in 1976.  Always driven by a powerful creative need his diversity and depth have sustained him through the tribulations of professional art.

A range of subject matter, experimentation and technique in the pursuit of that always elusive artists muse (excellence) has seen his work develop to the stage where he is represented extensively in corporate and private collection throughout Australia, the UK, Europe, USA and Asia.  Passion and commitment drive him to continually seek new ground with the tradition of using only the best materials available to create his works.

As a (predominantly) contemporary realist his combination of colour and composition produce works that are often dramatic and powerful. An abiding interest in contemporary sculpture has him placing his sculptural designs as a compositional element within his more enigmatic larger works..

I like my works to have something else about them.Something beyond the immediate image enigmatic, even a little surreal. They should reach people like a painted emotion whatever the subject matter.

I will always be restless and passionate and feel the need to continually develop and explore as an artist This is a journey through a landscape that is part of our DNA Our need to create and be inspired.
