About / Bio
New York raised and self taught artist Ralph Manis brings his vision of infinity down to earth by incorporating photo realism into his work. Photo realism is an obsession Ralph has had for as long as he can remember. As a young boy Ralph was heavily influenced by comic books, rock and roll, and the masters like Michelangelo and DaVinci, as well as the pre-Raphaelites, and the Art Nouveau masters. Now Ralph creates photo realistic 3D computer sci-fi and fantasy worlds using Autodesk Maya, Bryce 3D, Poser and Photoshop. He also runs a one man Web design company: Infinitee Web Solutions creating sites for artists, musicians and business. Based on his years of experience, Ralph has developed a full line of fine art prints on fine paper and T-shirts. Each print is airbrushed with vibrant colors to create a unique and original style.
