“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”



If I had to pick my top five Rick Melton oil paintings they would be Night Of The Demon, Son Of Frankenstein, Black Sunday, Harley Quinn and this one. I’m probably one of the fastest traditional artists out there and no sooner have I finished one piece than I’m roughing in the next but occasionally I’ll slump back in my chair, take a long, lingering look and think ‘XXXX me, this one’s really good!’
Fortunately, my opinion is pretty much worthless; otherwise out of the 400 or so paintings I’ve done, only five would be any good!
