Welcome to the home of artist, photographer, videographer, film maker, writer, sculptor, poet, musician, renaissance man, worldling and all around good guy to know, Richard Siegel

The Artist known as Rick

I have made a place, where those looking for the great art and projects I have worked on in my many years on this earth, can find. I hope to elaborate on each of the sections and exhibits, to give you an idea of where they come from and how they were made.

Photographs start from the early 1960’s and include travel to over 100 nations through the years. Galleries and photos from New York, London, Afghanistan and to the highest mountains in Nepal can be found; they tell the tales, travails,  and meetings with remarkable men.

Ceramics both painted and sculpted add to the breath of offerings here.

Paintings start from a 1964 woman in chalk to the latest homage to the amazing talents of Salvador Dali and Magritte.

Stories and poems written from the many experiences and travels.

Who knows? I may re-create the comic strips I did in High School when I created the Chicken Man Character in Chicago.

There will be a lot of surprises, so keep looking back to see forward.

In 1980 China and Russia started to let tourist into their country. My philosophy was always to get into any closed nation when they opened. You just never know when a country will close its’ border and you may never, in your lifetime, be allowed back in to see the wonders of the world. So it was that I journeyed around the world again during this time to visit the
