Over the last four and one-half decades, Ken Richards has entertained, and been followed by thousands upon thousands of loyal fans.
From the docks of the New Bedford Seaport to castles overseas, this affable and notably talented Renaissance man not only intrigues audiences who span generations but is known as a person who unites people—in part—because of his love for life and family and the positive outlook he is known to project.
Richards has been grounded by an exhaustive search for the “creative-self.” As an explorer, traveler, and performance artist, he is a man who strives to improve his innate abilities, often to resemble waves building from the sea, each delivering iridescence beauty when they arrive at the shore.
He’s on a journey in self-discovery; but, what is most notable about Richards is that he wants to take everyone along for the ride. And, if lucky enough to be invited—enjoy the experience—you won’t be disappointed.
For now, take a moment to learn where this easy going and multi-talented personality finds himself within the scope of his painting. We caught up to Richards at home relaxing before an evening gig; here is what he had to say.
