Ray Oranges' Artworks have a Beautiful Combination of Colour and Simple Geometry

These new illustrations by Ray Oranges show the power of simplicity.

Italian illustrator Ray Oranges has released a series of his work from recent various projects - and true to his beautiful style, each one is bursting with colour and deep-angle geometric combinations.

His vector-based illustrations combine bright colours, long shadows and empty space to depict real and surreal situations in an intricate yet not overbearing manner.

Calabria-born and now Florence-based, Ray has been working in design and image making since 2009, working for clients such as ad agency DDB New York, tech company Fujitsu and ad magazine Creative Review.
