Narrative/ bio


Ralph B. Beach is a self-taughtartist who was born and raised in Boston Massachusetts.  Ralph has a few years of structureduniversity study under his belt. He spent two years at Roxbury CommunityCollege, under the direct tutelage of the internationally known Master ArtistNapoleon Jones- Henderson concentrating on art of the African Diaspora. Hematriculated at the prestigious Pratt Institute of Art and Design for one yearas well.

These influences helped developedRalph’s large bold figurative style as well as his ability to paint portraitsthat are more than personal statements of likeness they are universal images ofcharacter and position and emotions.

 Ralph is often quoted as saying “When people are denied thepower of expression, they express the need for power”.


Ralph diligentlyworks on several series of paintings at a time. He has been working for thelast two years, on several bodies of work. He is currently working on a seriesof

·     Small 8x10’ black and white monochromatic oil paintingsof the CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

·      A serieshe is calling  “SILVER & GOLD”of people collecting bottles and cans.

·     A series of portraits of elderly people with uniquecharacter called “WISDOM UNFOLDED”.

·     And a series of portraits of women of color he iscalling “SHADES OF BROWN.

 Ralph is currently the Art Director atthe Yawkey boys and girls club of Roxbury and freelancing globally. 


Ralph is one ofthe newest members of AAMARP The African American Master Artists in-ResidencyProgram. AAMARP is an adjunct of the African American Studies Department ofNortheastern University, a goal he says he has aspired to all his life.

He has manypeople to thank, Northeastern University and Professor Dana Chandler, founderof AAMARP is not a bad place to start. It was professor Chandler who offeredRalph residency in 2006.
