Hi Everyone, and welcome to my site! My name is Ralph Sanchez and this website is here to feature all the creations I have made over the years. Please feel free to check out my artwork, music (Red Echoes), and some of my poems and philosophies. This is going to be a constant work in progress so I hope you enjoy yourself here, and keep checking back for updates!
A very brief story about my journey as an artist:
I've always been somewhat cursed by a very overactive imagination that had me constantly creating superheroes, monsters, and stories when I was a child. When I was old enough I attended the Colorado Institute of Art to be able to translate my ideas into a career. After only about 1 semester a teacher set me aside and told me that I was wasting my time and that a guy like me either makes it or doesn't; that a degree won't make or break me, but instead it had to do with my willpower. A few years later I ended up in Germany where I began to work at a fine art company and met my mentor Erik DeAndre Robinson who changed my life and helped me grow immensely in a very short amount of time. I then went back to the U.S. and had the great fortune of befriending and getting to learn from the screenprinter and artist Lindsey Kuhn. At this point I started doing many art shows, stage performances, and creating merchandise. I should've been on cloud 9, but the art world can be very shallow and pointless at times. This left a bitter taste in my mouth, and I left the art scene for about 15 years. Even though I distanced myself from the art world, I couldn't help but continuously create drawings, music, and stories. In 2018 again I had the great fortune of having fantastic friends and this lead to me returning to the world of art, as an airbrush artist for a local playground equipment manufacturer. Then a few months later I was accepted into the Next Art Gallery! There's just too much luck, and coincidence that I've had to ignore the fact that I'm put on Earth to create. So here I am, and I will continue to make things that I hope people of all types will enjoy. It's the least I can do to say thanks to all the awesome people that have stood by me through these years.
"Between the dream state and the material world is where my mind exists. I have a sleep disorder. I have a strange life. I am a resident in a world of abstract fantasies and Earthly distortions. This is my mind. A mind of a goblin. Let's go for a ride!"
