I am Richie Montgomery, an artist in Cambridge MA. who specializes in hand drawn Pen and Ink surrealistic themed art. I have been drawing my entire life and have had no formal training other than just my own desire to create from the time I could hold a crayon or pencil. I enjoy many different types of art yet surrealism holds my passion the most.
I get my inspiration from my many travels throughout the country while living life as homeless alcoholic train-hopping and hitchhiking to get around, my strange view of the world and the strange quirky nature that I have on life. I gained sobriety and with that change in my life, I gained a whole new perspective. While begging for money in Harvard Square, I met a woman who finally gave me a reason to actually live, instead of spending my life chasing the next beer, God sent her to me and now I am living my dream. I have settled down and finally had and took a chance to actually do something with my life besides drink, I decided to pursue my art. I spend an enormous amount of time drawing each and every fantastic detail and enjoy every line and dot that fills the paper. With a grateful heart, a loving soul, and an open mind, I present to you ElectricKoolAid Art.
I hope this gives you some idea as to who I am and what I'm about. Thank you for your curiosity and business.
