Richard Mierniczak was born in Poland, lives and works in Leonberg near Stuttgart. He is self-taught. Over the years he acquired painting techniques and theoretical knowledge in the field of art through self-study. He started painting around the age of 17-18. Since then, oil has become his main technique. He also adopted the soft pastel technique, which he used to create a range of natural and urban landscapes. The main motif of his works are natural landscapes, a clear commitment to nature - in childhood, the fields, meadows and forests were the best playground for him and his playmates. Over time, urban landscapes, geometric abstractions and symbolic-surreal themes were added to his subjects, but nature always returns as a continuous motif like a boomerang. Depending on the subject, he uses different painting techniques. For landscapes, the oil is “alla prima” with impressionistic, spontaneous brushstrokes; for other motifs he occasionally uses simple layering techniques. For geometric abstractions he started with oil, but over time switched to acrylic technique. In his abstract works, the viewer's eye is guided through imaginary spaces, contours and color landscapes and for him they are a kind of mental game with colors and shapes. The geometric abstractions are influenced by his main profession as a designer in civil and mechanical engineering, with an emphasis on the spatiality of the geometric figures depicted. The color scale of his paintings ranges from ascetic monochrome to lush form and color.
