Historical Context:
Ronald is a very versatile artist who is mostly self-taught. He has built up a sound reputation through his mastery of painting and graphics. His work is about people and the way in which they operate in society. Possessing impressive skills, technical restrictions are strange to him. In substance, he is inspired by illustre predecessors with whom he deliberately tries to find lines that link past, present and future together.
