Guest Host Rex Ray
Rex Ray’s artwork ranges from collage on paper, canvas and resin boards to digital work. Ray’s work is made entirely by hand. The collages are made with hand-painted and printed papers hand cut with scissors. His work combines a mid-century modern aesthetic with psychedelic color palette and shapes. Ray is known for popularizing the use of high-gloss resin panels — encasing his colorful, graphic collage designs in a gorgeous glossy layer of resin.
Ray’s collages, paintings and design work have been exhibited at galleries and museums, including The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Jose Museum of Modern Art, The Crocker Museum in Sacramento, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver. Abstract and handcrafted, with a retro-futuristic feel, Rex Ray’s work is always identifiable, whether seen on museum or gallery walls, in hip restaurants and boutique hotels — or on book, CD covers or rock posters. He has worked on a wide range of custom projects for Apple, Dreamworks, Swatch and David Bowie among others.
2011 marked Rex’s debut into product design with the launch of two lines: Rex Ray Studio and R2Lab. Both Rex Ray Studio and R2 Lab allow individuals to incorporate elements of Ray’s signature aesthetic through rich designs and textiles available at various price points and retail locations.
