This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Richard Wyatt Jr. (1955-)

He was born in Lynwood, California in 1955 and has been a presence in the Los Angeles art scene since he was twelve years old when he was photographed making his prize-winning drawing at the Watts Chalk-In, a street art competition. At this 1968 event, Wyatt also made his professional debut by winning $200 in both the youth and adult categories.  His early art education began in the mid-1960’s at the Watts Towers Art Center and the Studio Watts Workshop.  He also attended the Tutor Art Program (established by the late Bill Tara) which met on Saturdays at the Otis Art Institute.  At these Saturday sessions led by artist William Pajaud, Wyatt began studying, drawing and painting with artist and teacher Charles White.  In 1978, he obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.  Wyatt has taught drawing and painting at the University of California, Irvine; the Otis/Parsons Art Institute, Los Angeles and the Watts Towers Art Center, Los Angeles.

For more than 25 years, Wyatt has actively produced art for public and corporate spaces with more than 30 murals to his credit.  He was awarded a public commission, with the artist May Sun, for the important Robert F. Kennedy Monument in Los Angeles at the former Ambassador Hotel on Wilshire Boulevard.  In addition, Wyatt has produced a significant body of smaller scale paintings and drawings that have been regularly exhibited in galleries and museums for more than 30 years – most recently in Looking Ahead: Portraits from the Mott-Warsh Collection at the Muskegon Museum of Art in Michigan in 2008; Visions, Selections from the James T. Dyke Collection of Contemporary Drawings, opening at the Naples Museum of Art, Florida in 2007 and closing at the Arkansas Arts Center, Arkansas in 2008; About Face, a solo exhibition at Steve Turner Gallery, Los Angeles in 2005 and in Representing L.A., a traveling group museum exhibition organized by the Frye Art Museum in Seattle in 2002.
