R.S.Riddick Biography

Born and raised in sunny Santa Monica, California, Ron was the son of an art director at Prudential Insurance—so he had access to the tools of commercial art. While in high school, he took the extra challenge of night classes at the Los Angeles Art Center and College of Design, where he found that he was quick to pick up both classic and new techniques in continuing to improve his skills. He then left school to work in a printmaking atelier, but it wasn’t until he began to study with Russian artist Sergei Bongart that he was truly inspired. He says of Bongart “I sensed something in Bongart I lacked: the gift of painting from the heart and spirit. But Sergei did more than instruct me in painting. He shared his love of music, literature, poetry, nature, life and showed me the historic connections.” Bongart was not the only artistic influence in Ron’s life—his work is often compared favorably to John Singer Sargent. He has the same ability to capture on canvas and paper the personality and life of those he paints. Riddick now makes Tuscon, Arizona his home. His recent accomplishments include traveling to Europe twice where he invested countless hours of study in Europe’s finest museums, galleries and collections—and where he painted on location in cities and in the countrysides of Portugal, Spain, Italy and France. He shows his work at select galleries and shows throughout the country and, along with many other awards and accolades, is an Artist of America Master Painter and a member of the Cowboy Artists of America.

R.S.Riddick has been painting the beauty, color and strength of the Western experience for more than 20 years. From a very early age he demonstrated creative skills and was encouraged by teachers and his parents to study art.

Riddick, who grew up in Los Angeles, is a classically trained artist who studied at Chounaird Institute and the Art Center College of Design. After a career as an art director and owner of a graphics business, he began painting professionally. He credits his studies with Russian painter Sergei Bongart, as teaching him to "paint from life." But it was his childhood experiences on his uncle's Northern Arizona ranch that built his love for the animals and people who create the West.

"It is my goal to capture the poetry of the West and the scenes that evoke the memories of the way things were and still are today," Riddick explains. "By recording the story of the Western experience, I can positively touch people's lives."

Riddick was elected into the Cowboy Artists of America in 1997. He has won numerous awards and honors including Artist of the Year Fiesta De Los Vaqueros in l99l and United States Olympic Equestrian Team Artist of the Year in 1993. He is an original member of the Oil Painters of America and recently became a member of the California Art Club. Riddick and his wife, Nataiie, live In Tucson, Ariz. where they raise and breed Arabian horses, a favorite subject of many of his works.
