Ahhh, this is one amazing painting. The light, depth… the wonderful dark areas that make the light areas just really stand out… stunning in every way. William Wray has the uncanny ability to take a subject, from super hero to bannister and make it one heck of a painting! Check out his work at WilliamWray.com – his Superhero series never fails to put a smile on my face. The urban landscapes are moody and incredible… the abstracts – WHOA! Check out all of his paintings, I truly believe this man can paint absolutely anything!

Check out William’s work at The Vault Gallery, Cambria, CA – that’s where you’ll find The Bannister!

I love how he has a List of influences… very cool indeed! I am a big fan of his and have been for many years now.

Read a bit about William Wray from his website:

William Wray has lived in California most of his life and studied painting at the Art Students League in New York. 

Making his living as a cartoonist who specialized in painted subjects, he spent many years coalescing a eclectic array of art styles, ultimately finding his voice in a contemporized reflection of traditional California regional painting that focus on humble subject matter rarely considered as fine art. 

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. Wray has challenged himself to create a brand of realistic expressionism he hopes to use a bridge into the customarily circumspect contemporary art world.
