As a graduate of the Graphic Arts program at Humber College, Ron Greig began his career as a sign designer and painter. His next job was with one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in Canada (Claude Neon, currently Outfront Media), where he reproduced small works of art into outdoor advertising spectacles that reached sizes of up to 1200 square feet. Working with seasoned masters at an early age, Ron soon became one of North America’s top artists in his field, with his renditions donning the streets of Canada, the United States, and many other countries across the globe. Having the opportunity to paint celebrity faces and a vast variety of other complex subject matter in huge proportions helped contribute to the development of Ron’s exceptional eye for detail and colour. During Ron’s forty year plus career in advertising, he also managed the hand paint studio, print production, wall mural painting and special effects.
Currently focused as an award winning realist painter Ron enjoys creating and teaching in his home studio. A longtime resident of Burlington Ontario, he is also a member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Society, International Guild of Realism and executive member of the Burlington Fine Arts Association.
