William Wray blends traditional skill sets of realism and the sheer energy of abstract expressionism in an ongoing evolution to find the balance between two seemingly unrelated styles. Having studied in New York he made a living as a well-respected cartoonist and animator, before eventually finding his voice in a contemporised reflection of traditional Californian regional painting that focuses on humble subjects.
We at Collect Art are thrilled to have acquired two paintings from the American artist, ‘Refined‘ and ‘Refinery‘. As many of our clients know I’m a huge fan of William Wray’s work and have been for many years. It is a massive honour to be the first and only gallery in the United Kingdom to house his brilliant works.
