Ralph Oberg biography:

Ralph Oberg grew up hiking, camping, hunting, and climbing in the high mountain wilderness of Colorado. His love of the wild country and the animals that live there has directed his life choices and is the reason he is an artist today. His goal is to share his experiences garnered during his numerous wilderness trips from Alaska to Arizona, California to Colorado.

After brief stints at Colorado State University and in commercial illustration, Oberg began painting birds and mammals during the 1970s and ’80s, with repeated appearances at the Birds in Art Show at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin.

His appreciation for Rungius’s work led to the realization that only by painting outdoors could he learn the light and color of the world.  So for a dozen years in midcareer he focused almost exclusively on painting plein-air landscapes.  He now has brought that education back into the studio to refocus on his first love: the wild animals of the American wilderness in their appropriate habitats.  Oberg now travels extensively, sketching and photographing on-site and producing larger works in his studio in Montrose, Colorado, where he and his wife, painter Shirley Novak, live within sight of his beloved San Juan Mountains.

Oberg’s work is in numerous private and corporate collections as well as the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming, as a past recipient of the Bill Weiss Purchase Award, and in the House of Representatives Chambers of the Colorado State Capitol, Denver.  This is his 11th year at the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale.  He has also exhibited at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City; the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, Indiana; and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming.

Oberg is a member of the Society of Animal Artists, Plein-Air Painters of America, and the Northwest Rendezvous Group. His work has appeared in Art of the West, Southwest Art, Sporting Classics, and Wildlife Art magazines.
