Ricky Romain is a highly regarded human rights artist, who for decades has used his art to highlight issues of exile, resistance and human rights abuses. He has a broad audience having worked with Amnesty International UK, BID (Bail For Immigration Detainees) and others. His work has also been shown at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg.
Robert became intrigued by Ricky’s work when he realised that many of Ricky’s images had the same social and political ideas that did Robert’s work, and also as he came to understand that they both have a particular understanding of the unity between truth and beauty.
