Ray Drea

Ray has taken his years of working with enamel paint on metal to create a series of iconic figures from Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Jimmy Buffett Dave Grohl, Mick Jagger, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ernest Hemmingway, and many others.

Whether creating fine art or designing graphics and motorcycles as former VP of Styling at Harley-Davidson Motor Co., Ray has gathered international acclaim for telling compelling visual stories through an array of subjects, styles and mediums.

Seeing the brush strokes and flow of paint is a consistent theme to Ray’s work, giving the sensation as if you are witness to the moment of expression from the artist. Crucial to delivering an emotional energy, thus connecting to the viewer’s soul.

Although he is very skilled with subject variety and finds it rewarding, the most fulfilling work is creating commissioned paintings for others. Here the client can consider key input such as size, colors, subject, and style to really make an impactful statement for a special place in a home, office or garage. From the collaborative effort, to ultimately seeing the smiles from exceeding your expectations truly provides that bespoke experience. Ray holds numerous design patents from his tenure at Harley-Davidson, was inducted into the Sturgis Hall of Fame, a recipient of the Chicago Brushmasters Lifetime Achievement Award, and his works are in numerous private and public collections around the world.
