Art.com Launches Exclusive Collection with Contemporary Artist Rex Ray
San Francisco Artist Brings “Modern Meets Psychedelic” Aesthetic to 50 Exclusive Pieces for Leading Online Retailer
EMERYVILLE, CALIF. (Jan. 8, 2014)—Art.com, the world’s leading online destination dedicated to experiencing and buying art, today unveiled an exclusive collection of vibrant, affordable prints by notable artist Rex Ray. Known for his mid-century modern aesthetic that mixes psychedelic color palettes and shapes, Ray has combined his love of collage with digital media to create 50 energetic artworks exclusively available on Art.com.
“Rex Ray is recognized around the world for his art and design,” said Ivy Ross, Chief Marketing Officer of Art.com. “We admire his retro-futuristic work and are excited to offer our customers the opportunity to enliven their spaces with these vivid prints.”
The Rex Ray collection, only available on Art.com, features unique images starting at less than $100. The collection includes a series of “Doplet” prints, each magnifying a specific shape and color for an immediate, graphic impact, which lends itself well to groupings of several pieces.
“Making collages was a personal escape from the computer, and in the process, I developed a personal language and vocabulary that traverses the digital and the handmade,” said Rex Ray. “These exclusive prints for Art.com are the result of a continuing project that brings together the handmade and the digital.”
The inspiration behind this retro-futuristic collection lies in a variety of sources, including mid-century art, local San Francisco painters, contemporary music, and the sublime colors of nature. Ray’s art is immediately identifiable, whether on museum, gallery or hotel walls, books, CD covers, rock posters, or apparel. He’s also designed for global lifestyle brands including Apple, Dreamworks, Swatch, and Blik wall graphics.
