Over 75 years Bakshi has been painting, drawing, studying and evolving artistically. His art studios have varied and have ranged from:
a Brooklyn tenement - NYC loft - Los Angeles - Upstate New York - New Mexico.
Each circumstance in life directly reflected in his art: his work life, personal life, influences.
Introducing you to the Art of Ralph Bakshi, a euphony of artistic splendor.
Bakshi's style is limitless. From oils, pastels, acrylics, ink, watercolor to cement, wood, metal, nails, hammers, saws. There has been a tremendous arc of style over a lifetime of exploration. Absolutely nothing is off limits.
Ralph's subject matter covers everything from social/ political statements to the simple, internal character conversations between old friends. We can view weeping willow trees and vast flower fields to abandoned city buildings and broken down circus trains. From a fellow at the saloon in town today, to an old bodega owner in Brooklyn from the 50's. Each has a full story to tell. Each piece of art is it's own tale - an entire storyline masterfully constructed by human hands on a single plane. A Bakshi storyline - one you will never forget.
