Richard Heiens [Certified Visual Artist – Greenacres, FL]
Dr. Richard Heiens is a new Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from Greenacres, FL.
Dr. Richard Heiens is an accomplished international artist whose colorful abstract expressionist works never fail to solicit an emotional reaction from the viewer. His paintings are mostly abstract in nature with some figurative art. His abstracts highlight shapes and colors. Using color intensity and simplicity of composition, his works make a big impact without crowding the canvas.
His paintings have a wonderful balance and handling of the acrylics. They catch the eye of the beholder with their colors and shapes which tell a story. His paintings have a balance of warm, cold. and neutral color composition with a mix of different round and edged components. There are clear boundaries filled with soft shifting nuances. He uses layering of the paints to create the richness in the colors with light and darks being well placed.
In Rome, Italy, Dr. Heiens took lessons from Professor Sergio Graziani, a famous artist and actor, on how to paint in oil and acrylics. When Dr. Heiens returned to the states, he taught art to seventh graders in Illinois. He obtained a Doctorate Degree in Education Technology in 2006.
Dr. Heiens obtained gallery representation in Texas and London after selling his works on Instagram. He has had private commissions from clients in Italy, Germany, the UK, Illinois, Missouri, South Carolina, California, Florida, and Washington.
