Galerie BAQ / ARTIST / Richie NATH

Richie Nath (b.1995 in Yangon, Myanmar).

Richie Nath is a Queer Myanmar artist and illustrator based in Paris.

He was raised in Myanmar and spent his studies in England. Graduating from the London College of Fashion (2017) in fashion illustration, Nath is a member of the agency of artists in exile. His paintings explore themes of Queer self reflection, identity and dreams.

Richie Nath combines illustration and painting with a tapestry of vibrant colors and intricate forms, delving into the complexities of the human figure, identity, eroticism and politics in the context of his own experience as a youth in a conservative society. Nath investigates the intricacies of the human psyche, and is compelled by mythology, Egyptian gods and Buddhist folklore. Nath’s paintings serve as a portal to his inner world.
