Richard Weinstein is a classically-trained painter based in NYC.

He strives to show a dignity and value in being “Ordinary” and “Mundane”, and an appreciation for “Rawness” over anything “Refined”.

Richard graduated from School of Visual Arts' Illustration department before going on to study at Art Students League. At ASL, he earned the Phyllis Mason Grant while studying oil portraiture and also figurative watercolor under notable artists Ron Sherr, Irwin Greenberg, Max Ginsburg, and Sharon Sprung. Simultaneously, Richard also spent many years doing murals for Evergreene Studios, various editorial caricature illustrations, commercial storyboards, became a visiting painting instructor for the prestigious Doon School in Dehradun, India (Spring 2012), and since Fall 2012 has been teaching Illustration at the prestigious High School of Art and Design in Manhattan.
