BIO: Ray Sell received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Working on small collages and paintings, Ray describes the concept of masculine traits depicting the effect our media plays upon our collective psyche. Appropriating vintage imagery which he re-invents as paintings with bold contrasting color schemes, strong use of layering and diagonal lines that cut through his canvas, Ray’s work keeps the viewer’s eyes engaged at all times.

Ray’s artwork has been displayed in New York, Miami, Asbury Park and Ireland. He has received critical acclaim from New York Magazine’s July 2009 issue, the July issue of L Magazine, June 2008 issue of ArtCards, the 2008 preview for the Miami Basel shows in Forbes Magazine and the Dec 2007 Art Basel Review in the Economist.
