Ralph Kerle is a multi-media artist using image, sound and text to create works that push the edges of art practices.
Graduating from the Victorian College of The Arts majoring in Dramatic Arts in 1979 and with a Masters in Creative Industries, Ralph came to prominence in Australia in the early 90s as an arts pioneer in multi-media performance whilst he was Associate Director of Sydney Theatre Company.
This work led him to a decade or so in directing TV commercials with Australia’s leading advertising agencies.
Over the last two decades he worked as Creative Director in his own event company, Eventures specializing in the design and production of large scale public and corporate live events.
This series of work represents a return to and re-interpretation of his earlier multi-media work in a domain that has now metamorphosed into digital art. His focus is on the conceptualization and design of fine art digital artworks and it is through his past creative experiences, he has developed his unique visual philosophy and style – “his aesthetic eye.”
His work is now held in corporate and private collections in Australia, Greece, India, Latvia, Mexico, Singapore and the USA.
