The Psychedelic Furs' Richard Butler:
From post-punk's original whorehouse priest to pop star to painter.
Richard Butler was born in Surrey, England June 5, 1956. He graduated from the Epsom School of Art and Design, and went on to establish the internationally renowned rock group, The Psychedelic Furs, in 1977.
Painting was Butler’s first love, and over the past ten years he has returned to it with a passion. His paintings unflinchingly convey the pathos and pretension of the human comedy,and also the persistence of human dignity.
Butler has received much acclaim for his paintings, and has had gallery exhibitions in New York, Miami, Florida and Florence, Italy. His work has been shown alongside Francis Bacon, Alberto Giacometti, Diane Arbus and
Willem De Kooning.
