Rick Fleming (b. 1969) lives and works in Austin, Texas. An accomplished portrait artist, drummer, and former bodybuilder, Fleming is equally adept in drawing and painting. With his signature humor and standout line work, he uses images and text to capture the essence of his subjects. Fleming draws inspiration from pop culture, especially classic rock, movies from the eighties and nineties, and WWE wrestling.
Fleming has been a studio artist at SAGE Studio since its inception in January 2017. His work is in private collections across the country and has been represented at New York City’s Outsider Art Fair. Fleming was recently commissioned by the Joe Biden campaign to draw a portrait of the VP to be reproduced as an official Biden tote bag.
