Biography

 

Ralph Oberg, b. 1950, Biloxi, Mississippi, (United States)
 
 
After a brief stint in commercial illustration, Oberg began to support himself with his paintings. Wildlife dominated his interest for over 10 years. In 1987, Oberg changed his artistic direction and began to study with some of the contemporary plein-air masters of today including Wayne Wolfe, Clyde Aspevig, and Len Chmiel. For the past decade he has focused on plein-air painting as a means of learning the colors and values of the world, and how to capture a sense of the moment and place. Recently, animal subjects have begun to reappear in Oberg's work, combining his natural drawing ability and accumulated knowledge of animals with a more impressionistic painting technique.
