The Official Ralph Bakshi website of contemporary art.  View over seventy years of fine art that drove and inspired Bakshi's animation art career.  

The artistic development of Ralph Bakshi encompasses more than 70 years. He is a self-taught artist who was initially inspired by the The Ashcan School, and later by the Abstract Expressionists, who saw painting as a pure expression of emotion. New York City provided the physical and cultural environment that nurtured Bakshi's imagination and that of his contemporaries. Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Francis Bacon and Chiam Soutine were his strongest influences.....
