Born in Salzgitter-Lebenstedt, Dirk Richter has been living in Hanover since 1997. Since early 2004 he has been creating his drawings as pinup, comic and fantasy images. During this time he developed his very own style. Dirk's work has been exhibited worldwide. His “striped” series is now internationally renowned, and his work is therefore highly recognizable. In the meantime, his minimalist portrait series of past Hollywood icons has also attracted a great deal of attention.
