Multi-award winning, dimensional artworks created entirely from sculptured sheet formed papers.
Ray Besserdin, born to artist parents, began his passion with paper in childhood and later graduated in Biological Sciences from Latrobe University. His work ranges from miniature to gigantic, from abstract to ultra-realistic. He terms his signature style “Impressionistic Sculptured Paper”, because it is only loosely representative, and concerned with capturing emotive responses, not realism. Ray uses mostly handmade and mould-made, sheet formed cotton and mulberry papers from Europe and Asia.
Nature is favourite subject matter.
Ray has 24 national and international awards, including two gold from New York, one for a 2 x 3m Macquarie Bank corporate commission. In 2018 Mondial Art Academia of France awarded him a Gold Medal for Creativity for “Path to Gondwana” from his Paper Landscapes exhibition presented with Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. In the same year he won First in the Nature Exhibition of LightSpaceTime Gallery, Florida and the People’s Choice Award, National Works On Paper, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Victoria. Corporate and Private commissions hang worldwide.
Further in 2018 Ray was appointed the Australian Ambassador for Mondial Art Academia, France
By invitation of Mona Youssef Fine Art Gallery, Ray will be exhibiting at Caroussel du Louvre, Paris October 2019.
