Opening art experiences that completely transform digital or physical environments and invites the public to open themselves up to fresh perspectives that leave lasting impressions, while abstracting graffiti and mixing other styles of art together. Fusing street art, sign painting, calligraphy, comics, anime, illustration and contemporary art, Ray's works extract from these inspirations to further expand on and bring together various art forms from all around the world in a bold, vibrant graphic style. Creating moments of reflection where the community can relate to the message conveyed by the artist and see themselves in the artwork itself.
