Richard Ashe was born in Manhattan, NY and grew up in Two Bridges, on the lower east side. The city housing projects he grew up in loomed eerily close to the Brooklyn Bridge. He frequented the adjacent neighborhoods Little Italy, SOHO, and the east village as a teenager because art galleries and street fairs were free entertainment. He didn’t know that idle passing of time would eventually lead to an art career.
