Richard Kirk

Richard is a Canadian artist who is known for creating complex works of art and super fine lines using pen and ink and the silverpoint technique. His images explore the space between imagination and reality and challenges conventional notions of the beautiful and the grotesque. He is interested in the forms found in nature, the morphology of plants and animals, and the effect of time on materials. He has illustrated numerous books for authors such as Clive Barker, China Miéville, Caitlin R. Kiernan, Poppy Z. Brite and others. In 2007, Kirk created six illustrations for Korn's eighth studio album.
