Richard Becker grew up in Los Angeles where he explored his creativity through photography, literature, and motocross racing. Becker began his adult career in the sciences, working his way through school and earning a Master’s in Engineering from Stanford University and obtaining several patents. Becker credits his artistic awakening to his progressing deafness and a three-year assignment in Europe. While traveling he began to blend the arts and sciences. Becker has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions and has been a technical collaborator with several artists and institutions, most notably ”the father of Pop Art” Richard Hamilton, The Getty Conservation Institute and The Tate London. He has been commissioned to create monumental works of public and corporate art as diverse as the POW Monument at the US National Cemetery, multiple portrait busts for The Emmys Hall of Fame, a heroic stainless steel Mercury for the Los Angeles Athletic Club and a bronze sculpture of Homer Simpson.
