Richard Hutchinson had led a turbulent life, which started in early childhood when his dad left him with an absent mother. This resulted in Hutchinson being in foster care with nothing and no one. Eventually, he grew up and found acceptance in a group that brought him down a crooked path. Throughout his life, he experienced homelessness many times and found greatness through his art. Hutchinson now focuses on his art and uplifting the homeless community living in Los Angeles’s Skid Row.
