Artist research – Ray Oranges


Ray Oranges is an illustrator based in Florence.

His work is very retro/vintage being geometric based to make landscapes, objects or portraits. He uses large shapes and bright contrasting colours to alter people’s perception of the work to fool them into perceiving things as light, shapes and shadows, triggering an emotional response.


His work makes cleaver use of space, shape and colour to move and attract people, which I feel could fit perfectly into any of the dates I am aiming to base my style of the project around.
