Rooted in the elements of composition, suggestion and simplicity, Richard Kilroy's work is recognised for its interplay of photorealist aspects and dynamic line. His style is identifiable not only for its realist pencil work, but a strong attraction to combining specific garment detailing with the striking looks of prolific editorial models, often portrayed with strong jawlines and piercing eyes.
In April 2013 a selection of Richard's works will become part of the V&A's permanent collection of fashion drawings, which will be available to view on request through the V&A Prints & Drawings Study Room.
Most recently, Richard created a series of illustrations for Canali store window displays worldwide. In late 2010 he was appointed by Christian Dior and Somerset House, as one of five illustrators to produce an original work for the exhibition Dior illustrated: René Gruau And The Line Of Beauty.
His publication Decoy includes both features and original works from established and emerging illustrators, including Julie Verhoeven, Richard Gray, Tara Dougans, Jasper Goodall, Cedric Rivrain and more. Issue 4 is out now and available here.
Currently, Richard is guest tutoring at the Royal College of Art, London.
