Growing up in New York's West Village "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.
As a young boy Ralph was heavily influenced by comic books, rock
and roll, and the masters like Michaelangelo and DaVinci, as well
as the pre-Raphaelites, and the Art Nouveau masters. At the age
of fifteen while working at an Advertising agency, Ralph began working
on his own comic series, "Space Pirates". He also began
playing the guitar, and creating artwork for rock and roll bands.
After grinding away a few years in the Ad business, Ralph, with
the encouragement of friends and art enthusiasts, began painting
jackets, guitars, walls, banners, and whatever else he could get
his hands on. Ralph found that he could share his art and make a
little money as well.
