In December 2017, Richard held a one-man art exhibit titled Surface at Art Museum located at Grand Heights Subdivision in Brgy. San Roque, Antipolo City.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Richard said most of his paintings were done at their home's backyard.

He said, "Most of these works, tinatrabaho ko sa floor o kaya sa table.

"Nandoon ako sa room sa likod [ng bahay] namin, sa may swimming pool. Minsan naman, pag nasa Ormoc, nasa garahe."

Fellow actor Ian Veneracion influenced him to pursue the craft as a hobby.

Meanwhile, Richard admitted to drawing inspiration from fellow painters including Ferdie Montemayor.
