Richard Tuff

Richard Tuff

Richard Tuff was born in Manchester in 1965. He completed a Foundation Art Course at Mid Cheshire College of Art in 1985 and went on to gain a Degree in Textile Design at Winchester School Of Art, showing his final year work at the Smiths Gallery, Covent Garden. After a highly successful time working as a textile designer, with his designs used for the textile industry in America, Europa and Japan, Richard moved to Cornwall at the end of 1988 and since then has concentrated on his paintings.
Richard Tuff's paintings have a unique almost child like charm to them. His jewel-like colours are rich and strong with many subtle changes of light and tone capturing so well on paper the Cornish harbours and towns. He carefully studies the subject matter to be painted and then captures the essence and the feeling of a place, often disregarding the natural order of things.
Richard Tuff has been represented by Beside The Wave since 1989 where he has developed a strong following of collectors from across the UK. In 2015, the gallery published the book 'Richard Tuff: 25 years of paintings', celebrating his career. His work is shown in solo exhibitions in both Beside The Wave Cornwall and Beside The Wave London.
