Oil on Board

About Ray Simonini
Simonini was born in China in 1981. He became intrigued by illustrations and used old comic books as a source of inspiration for drawing. Illustration continues to influence the style and direction of his work.
Every subject evokes a personality of its own, leaving the viewer to create the story. Each canvas captures a moment with movement and dimension.
With encouragement from his parents, Simonini went to art school where he graduated with a Fine Art degree, specializing in oil painting.
Since moving to the United States and residing in rural Vermont, Simonini found inspiration in the landscape and animals around him. He enjoys painting these subjects, giving each animal a personality of its own.
Simonini’s oil paintings can be found in many private and corporate collections worldwide.
