    Check out this artist that is making waves…beautiful.

  39. I have been wanting to dabble in stenciling and spray paint myself. Your work is great and makes me want to take it up sooner. Congrats on Chicago, it is always wonderful to see fellow artists succeed.

  40. Great work! Your display will surely get lots of visitors in Chicago! These paintings are very exact.

    Spray is prays backwards.

  54. katielu416 says:

    Wow, you are incredible! Loved looking through your work.

  55. I like the one with the girl sitting on the arm-chair! Mesmerizing!

  56. donnybud2 says:

    Awesome site, and amazing work! Here I thought everyone with a spray can was a vandal.

    • You think you gave this artist a compliment, but you actually insulted thousands of young artists all over the world, and revealed the racist basis of your thinking. Have you been living in outer space?
      Next, you’ll discover that rap, hip-hop, and spoken word artists are “articulate”

  57. marypamela says:

    I’ll probably be repeating what everyone said above, but I was blown away by the images and to know that it’s spray painting. I’ve never seen anything like it. Very unique and amazing!

  58. I saw these on the website link from a previous post and showed them to my artist husband. He has long been a fan of urban wall art, although in my ignorance, I have always called it graphiti. I can clearly see such a small negative word doesn’t do justice to either of those lovely ladies.

  59. Daniel Angel from Cape Cornwall says:

    Another amazing piece of art

    I immediately fell in love with “Lady” when Ray Ferrer (the artist) shared it on Facebook. Both containing intimacy and a sense of noir, I imagine an entire story behind the instant captured here. And it’s also pretty fantastic that Ray makes his art by using hand-cutting stencils with an X-Acto knife and then using spray paint on canvas.

    Awesome paintings…good work

  80. I voted for you on Facebook, but from the looks of things, you already have a huge following. Congrats.

  81. It appears I am coming to the party late. Nevertheless these works of art are awesome.

  82. Having spent a good three years living in Bristol, home of marmite-esque Banksy, I can safely say I have come to somewhat of a revelation with street art. I used to be one of the blind sheeple types who viewed this kind of thing as, ‘vandalism’ when, in reality it was phenomenal artwork!
    I am now a great appreciator of this form of artistic expression and am really enjoying seeing your work showcased here on your blog. Keep it up.

  83. Maxine G. says:

    Wow, truly impressed with your work. I love the effect of this mixture.

  100. lldjewelry says:

    Your murals are a work of art and it has been a treat to see them. I love how you capture the expression of your subjects using lights and shadows. I also liked your comment: “I am vehemently opposed to using art as a means to rely on overly-complex theories or ideas to prop up mediocre images.” If I understand your comment, then this is exactly how I feel. I have studied music theory and composition and have felt that music, and art in general, have become too intellectual, causing the humanity in the art to be sapped. Also some people have relied on these esoteric concepts to explain what they cannot produce in their art, hence they are mediocre.

  101. littleboone says:

    Are your stencils clear when you cut them? I love what you are doing.

  102. I AM the Voice of HEART. I can see by your talent that you are already listening to yours. Keep listening!

  109. kellig says:

    Love your art. I agree with the comment or who said it reminds them of a speakeasy. The monochromatic theme is perfect as well.

  110. I really dig your blog. It looks really cool and the content is great. I wish you an amazing 2013. Cheers.

  114. Monica says:

    wow! wonderful and amazing

  115. These are so lifelike, that if I didn’t know they were done with stencils, I would assume that they were old photos. Just spectacular.

  116. Those are absolutely phenomenal! So talented!

  117. gonzojr says:

    Always been a fan of spray paint at since I visited San Antonio and saw the amazing work dive by the street artists there. Excellent stuff man.

  144. chrissy50 says:

    So beautiful. Interesting to see a woman still look sexy smoking. I’m a smoker, and I usually feel so ashamed and made to feel like a pariah. Yet, here she is made to look so … alluring. That’s amazing, how you did that. Reminds me a bit of Marilyn Monroe.

  145. Find it SO hard to believe it is Spray Paint ;)
    Awesome Work!
