“Pierre le Riche was born in 1986 and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. After matriculating in 2005 he worked in the interior design industry, but soon turned his attention towards the arts and graduated with a BVA (Bachelor of Visual Arts) at the University of South Africa in 2013. During his undergraduate studies he was a finalist in various art competitions including the prestigious Absa L’Atelier in 2013, and in 2014 he took part in an artist-in-residence program at the Arteles Creative Centre in Haukijarvi, Finland.
He currently works as an independent artist from his studio in Woodstock, Cape Town and plans to pursue a MFA at the Michaelis School of Fine Arts in 2015″. [From the artist’s website / Du website de l’artiste]
