Bio of Ralph White

 

headshot

Artist's Statement: Ralph White is an abstract artist who brings a lifetime of transformational thinking into his work. A highly successful executive business coach, Ralph has worked with thousands of clients to uncover new possibilities for their companies. He brings this same philosophy into his modern painting, expressing the soul's ability to evolve. His paintings reflect his constant pursuit of enlightenment and his openness to intuitive response. One of the premier creators of spiritual and mystic art in Los Angeles, Ralph is a painter who is inspired by the power of intention. A believer in the artist's ability to create a dialog through each image, he is continually intrigued by the convergence of the art and the observer. Through his work, Ralph persistently forges the opportunity to achieve personal breakthrough and reaction to the spirit and soul.
