Richard Duardo, renowned artist and master printer, has been an advocate of the arts in Los Angeles for over 25 years. Considered the "West Coast-Warhol," Duardo was honored by the National Endowment for the Arts and named "The Artist of the Year" in 1988 by the California Arts Commission. As a printmaker, Duardo has produced a vast body of serigraphs, his preferred medium. Since 1980, his fine art print studios have produced the works of over 400 artists, including art-icons Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Ron English, Blek Le Rat, Raymond Pettibon, David Hockney, John Van Hamersveld and Keith Haring.
Duardo is a graduate of UCLA in graphic design, and has exhibited in Japan, Mexico, Germany, and New York. Many major universities, including University of California, Santa Barbara's Department of Chicano Studies, University of San Antonio and Stanford University, collect his studio archives
