Rex Ray: Rest in Peace

Rex Ray. Mixed Media.

I am in complete utter shock since I heard about Rex Ray‘s passing yesterday. I had poured over his work a few years ago to develop my own sketches, some of which, eventually became trees for a poster I had designed to support the “Vote the Environment” campaign right before the 2014 mid-term elections.

No doubt that his work will continue to influence me and others. Rest in peace, brave artist.

Rex Ray works out of San Francisco, California. His resin panels recall Henri Matisse, Joan Miro and a lot of originality.
