Donray may be best known for an radical technique he uses in his acrylic works, a technique he has pioneered. It involves an acrylic-on-acrylic collage. The collage material is the similar as that bodily used to paint with, and developed through a tedious process of mixing, pouring, manipulation and cutting.
