About the Artist
Rick Worth creates paintings on “conch shingles,” discarded shutters, walls, cars and even canvas. He arrived in Key West fresh from the Navy some 20 years ago and has since left his mark all over town on cars, murals, fences, posters, tee shirts, theatre sets and parade floats. He’s participated in Sculpture Key West for several years, including a composition called Dali-ing Around, large watch/clock faces draped over rocks. As he increasingly turned to fine art, he showed his work at Harrison Gallery, Lucky Street, and his own much-missed Three-Legged Dog gallery on White, named for his late great dog Kido.
Worth teaches a wildly popular painting class, Boot Camp, at The Studios of Key West. During a recent retrospective at the Studios, the street was lined with examples of his painted cars (and even a boat).
