RYCA - REFRESH - SOLO EXHIBITION
Solo show opening and interview at Robert Fontaine Gallery.
East Londoner RYCA, whose real name is Ryan Callanan, is a part of the London-based art team Scrawl Collective. Movies, pop art, and the Renaissance are all sources of inspiration. His work takes iconic images from the past and puts them into new context. He revels in the pop cultural pastiche inspired by the street art he observed while working as a sign maker outside of a pub in London. These 3D signs can be seen all over the city today. His background in sign manufacturing and model making has helped him develop an aesthetic that is distinctly his own. RYCA infuses new and old, not only into his subject matter, but also into the production by experimenting with CNC engineering and industrial processes.
RYCA is represented by the Robert Fontaine Gallery.
