Ronald Wineck’s passion for art has been evident throughout his entire life, as he was lucky enough to have started young, and ambitious enough to keep going.

His freehand techniques, surreal characters and unique style of composition have made him a respected figure in Canada’s underground art scene and his mission is ever-evolving. Wineck’s art is not limited to a particular medium, as he enjoys experimenting with various materials and techniques to produce rare and captivating pieces. However if given a choice, he will always choose a big wall as his canvas and airbrush and spray paint as his tools.
Ronald went big with his art for the first time in 1998 when he volunteered to paint the walls of the Boys and Girls Club in his hometown of Lindsay Ontario. From that point on, his life was constructed around sharing his craft with the world and this marked the tipping point where he started to paint everywhere he went. Some other notable projects done around Lindsay during the beginning of his career included: a floor-to-ceiling rendering of a mad scientist in his high school cafeteria (L.C.V.I.), Breeze Skateboard shop signage and a prolific large-scale painting for one of the town’s leading home appliance shops.
After leaving small-town life Ronald decided to explore the world of cartooning. He graduated with a diploma in Classical Animation from Algonquin college where he studied character design, animation, background design, and comprehensive life drawing. Although having a command of all these creative tools helped to evolve Wineck’s creative approach, it only took working at a handful of animation houses to recognize where his true passion lay. Painting.
Ronald’s manner of spray painting evolved tremendously through his involvement in several community events centered around Graffiti culture such as Under Pressure in Montreal, and the infamous 416 & Style in Progress alleyway blowouts held in downtown Toronto.
Around the same time (2001-2006) Ronald made the right connections in the film industry and was given the opportunity to demonstrate his innate ability to work efficiently within project time frames. Wineck broke into the lucrative music video scene producing film set background art in the form of classic large-scale graffiti pieces for Canadian Hip Hop royalty: Saukrates, King Reign, G Stokes, Razor Fam, and Kardinal Official.
During this influential time in Wineck’s life, he was also working with corporate giant Molson Canada at various sponsored venues producing interior and exterior branding projects from start to finish. He also started working with the conglomerate that owned Wildwing restaurants and by 2009 he had completed 20+ full 360-degree restaurant interiors throughout the province of Ontario.
Giving back to the community through his art has always been a major factor in Wineck’s professional and personal life and it has always been his mission to do more for charitable causes. Ronald has submitted art to various not-for-profit organizations such as the Whitby Wildcats hockey team as well as the indigenous-led Truth & Reconciliation day event. Just recently Ronald organized a silent auction fundraiser consisting of his canvases, which raised close to 1k in donations. This campaign successfully aided a colleague to extract his family safely from war-torn Ukraine.
For the past 10+ years, Ronald has consistently received freelance commissions from a diverse range of private clients and businesses providing wrap-around designs, painted portraits, and intricate hand-drawn tattoo designs. He works well in high-pressure atmospheres and has performed in numerous live art shows across the province.
Ronald Wineck is a skilled artist who finds solace in the art of spray painting and the freedom it provides to express his revolutionary spirit. He is capable of working alone or alongside a team, and has proven positive results and references from all his past undertakings. Despite his vast success with gallery shows, featured exhibitions as well as custom commissions where his art has been collected by art enthusiasts globally, Wineck is eager to start focussing exclusively on large-scale murals and public art pieces.
