Ryan Myers (New York, USA)
Ryan Myers was born in 1978 in the suburbs of Long Island, New York. Trained at Hartford Art School and weaned in New York City, his playful, sombre paintings grew out of an obsession with Pee Wee Herman and the bad children from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. His works reflect an interruptive view into a sullen, mannequinesque world where sadness is masked in pinks, greens and blues. He currently lives and paints with his wife, dog and a spiteful lovebird.
