Richard Larter (19 May 1929 – 25 July 2014) was an Australian painter, often identified as one of Australia’s few terribly recognisable pop artists. Larter also frequently painted in a Pointillist style. He took advantage of unusual techniques taking into account painting: using a syringe filled with paint to create his prematurely works, and juxtaposing multiple images on to a canvas. Many of his works are brightly coloured and draw upon popular culture for source materials, reproducing news photographs, film stills, and images from pornography. He was married to Pat Larter, an artist who was keen in the Mail art movement, then work art and finally painting in a brightly coloured style similar to Richard’s. The Larters emigrated to Australia in 1962. Richard Larter’s pop art was less ironic than his American and English counterparts. In this Larter is same to supplementary noted Australian pop artists, such as, Mike Brown and Martin Sharp.
