Growing up in New York's West Village during the 60's - 90's "was inspirational" hanging out in Washington Square Park playing Frisbee and watching the people from around the world go by, his cast of characters were born. His imagination wandered through time and space-boundless through infinity. "Infinity is a place I often find comfort, serenity and inspiration" he says. Ralph's 3D graphics, 2D illustrations, sci-fi, fantasy and psychedelic art is filled with visions yet unseen, only dreamed of.
Ralph brings his vision of infinity down to earth by incorporating photo realism into his work. Photo realism is an obsession Ralph has had for as long as he can remember. Working on producing the photo realistic image was an addiction until he attended figure drawing sessions at the NYC Soho School of Living Arts. In his early twenties he spent eight months religiously attending these figure drawing sessions. He loved the freedom there. "There were no teachers, no critique and no one looking over your shoulder. I was free- free just to draw". The freedom experienced in Soho resulted in over 500 pieces.
