Richard Leon Mullins was raised in a working class neighborhood on Oklahoma City's south side, the son of a Police Detective and an Elementary School teacher. As a child Richard was captivated by the immediate surface of comic books and the viseral pop culture of the late 1960s and early 1970s suburban America. His professional career began in the commercial world of graphic design. At the same time the young artist filled sketch books with imaginative ink drawings that eventually led to paintings on canvas. His paintings have been collected worldwide from Scotland to Bulgaria to Japan. The artist's studio is located in a quiet suburb north of Dallas, Texas where he lives with his wife and family. Richard is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute (MFA) and The University of Oklahoma (BFA).
