MTV RE:DEFINE is a dynamic exhibition and auction that brings together iconic and specially commissioned artworks by established and emerging talent.
Born in Massachusetts in 1962, Richard Phillips lives and works in New York. He is known for his strikingly distinctive paintings. Drawn from found imagery, his work deals with the marketability of man, his wishes, ideas, actions, identity, sexuality, politics, and desires. He translates these images into both drawings and paintings executed through a traditional process.
Outside of the art world Richard Phillips is involved in fashion, media and film collaborations. He has contributed to the television show "Gossip Girl," MAC Cosmetics, The Art Production Fund, and Visionaire. He recently appeared as a guest judge on Bravo’s new TV series “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist”.
