About

Richard A. Kirk is a Canadian visual artist, illustrator, and author.

He exhibits internationally. Richard has illustrated works by Clive Barker, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Christopher Golden, China Mieville, the rock band Korn and others.

Richard's work is drawn from an interest in the forms and processes of the natural world. He explores these themes through the creation of meticulous drawings, which often depict chimerical creatures and protean landscapes. Metamorphosis is an underlying narrative in all of Richard's work.

Richard is the author of the novels, THE LOST MACHINE (Radiolaria Studios, 2010), and NECESSARY MONSTERS (Resurrection House, Arche Press, 2017), and a forthcoming short story collection (2017).
