All of us at artrepublic are incredibly saddened to hear the news of the passing of our friend and collaborator Richard Duardo.

Richard, based in Los Angeles, California was the founder of expert print makers, Modern Multiples and was incredibly influential on the contemporary art scene with more than 25 years of experience.

He worked with some of the biggest names in the art world producing over 450 pieces of art for many highly influential artists including Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey and Banksy to name just a few. His dedication to guiding and helping artists was prominent throughout his career with his famous print studio seeing the emergence of some highly sought after names in the art world. “I believe artists fill in the space that life has mutilated and rendered mute.” (Richard Duardo)

Richard Duardo will be sorely missed not only as a highly influential collaborator but as a friend. Thank you Richard for your continuous dedication to the art world.
