Ronaldo Byrd was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and now resides in Burlington, New Jersey with his mother and three younger siblings.

Byrd’s main medium is acrylic on foamboard, and his process involves observation of the world and the people in it.

His paintings depict his ideal world and how its inhabitants should treat each other.
