Rick Amor is an Australian artist, living and working in Melbourne. His practice includes paintings, drawings, watercolours, prints and sculpture. Rick is also highly renowned as a portraitist and has been commissioned by many institutions including the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. A major survey of Rick’s paintings was curated by McClelland Gallery in 1990 and toured various regional galleries in Victoria and South Australia throughout 1990 and 1991. In 1993 an exhibition mounted by Bendigo Art Gallery celebrated his work as a printmaker and graphic artist toured Victoria and Tasmania.

Rick’s works are held in major public galleries including the National Gallery of Australia and in private, corporate and institutional collections both within Australia and internationally.
