Riley has worn several hats in his life, all within the creative endeavour.After graduating from Londons Royal College of Art, he enjoyed a successful career as an industrial designer. Most notably, he designed and manufactured a plastic spoon for Häagen-Dazs, keyrings for fashion legend Vivienne Westwood, and had one of his design drawings featured in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. After a spell as a rock musician and a property remodeller, he moved from the UK to Grenada in 2016, where he devotes himself entirely to painting. The selection for the MADS exhibition are all produced in a natural setting where the only sound is wind and waves, and owls and giant fruit bats wing their way home as morning breaks . Riley would like to thank the M.A.D.S gallery for including me in this latest exhibition, and invite the viewer to look at other works online.
