Ralph McGaul

Painting, Printmaking


Ralph was born in Macclesfield in 1983 and attended Kings School, Macclesfield.


He completed an art foundation at City College Brighton and Hove.
He works in a range of media but predominantly creates oil paintings on board, woodcuts and etchings.

Typically naïve and primitive, Ralph’s paintings are characterised by a raw energy and expressive style.
Painting on board enables him to scratch and scrape into the surface, building up textures and exposing the multiple layers of paint.

Often he paints on salvaged boards and allows the existing colours or textures to show through.
In addition to his paintings, he also creates woodcuts and etchings.

Relief printing especially appeals to him as the technique limits the colour palette, creating strong opposing blocks of colour that form powerful simplified images.
