Rex Ray: Art + Design

Rex Ray: Art + Design Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rex Ray's highly collectible artwork is coveted in design as well as art circles. His color-bursting, curvaceous art graces the walls of high-design hotels, world-class museums, and hip restaurants, yet remains, as acclaimed author Douglas Coupland puts it in his foreword, "unslick, but superslick at the same time." Abstract and handcrafted, with a retro-futuristic mid-century feel, Rex Ray's meditations on fluid forms are a rare combination of sophistication and decorative appeal. The first monograph to survey his multi-faceted work in various mediaincluding paper cutouts, mixed-media collages, paintings, digital prints, and the highly admired graphic design and music packaging that launched his visual careerRex Ray is a veritable trove of his sleek yet playful aesthetic.
