With a fluid combination of charcoal, ink and paints, Bryan Ramey infuses his work with the surreal. Inspiration for his illustrated dream worlds comes from “the darker, more primitive side of man: the superstitious, the imaginative, the unknown part of ourselves,” he says.
Ramey attended the postbaccalaureate program at the School for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and galleries in both the United States and Australia have exhibited his work. He says he pursued a career in artistry to become “a storyteller.”
“I wanted to stir the emotions in people and spark that creative vision we as a culture seem to lose or deny ourselves as we grow up,” he says.
