Richard Kraft is an artist whose multidisciplinary works often use public spaces (library aisles, sides of buses, city streets, cow pastures, abandoned air force bases) as well as converse with the literary (many of his works use language, book pages, and appropriated narratives as material). In April 2015 Siglio Press published hist artist's book, Here Comes Kitty: A Comic Opera and he is co-editing, with Joe Biel, the first complete volume of John Cage's Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse) to be released by Siglio in the autumn of 2015. Publications include In the Air, a collaborative chapbook with Peter Gizzi, published by Manor House in 2013, as well as work featured in BOMB, Stonecutter, Short Fiction among other journals. His work has been shown widely, at galleries such as Charlie James, LA Louver, Rosamund Felsen, and most recently a ten-channel video installation at the Laguna Art Museum. Kraft was born and raised in London, England and now lives in Los Angeles.
