Ralph Goings Biography


American painter and printmaker, Ralph Goings is one of the leading SUPERREALIST / PHOTO-REALIST artists of his time.

Trained at the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, he works by projecting a slide or transparency onto a canvas, but uses traditional brushes, rather than the airbrushes preferred by most PHOTOREALIST artists.
