Mixing It Up Down on Good Old Planet Earth
A highly acclaimed artist specialising in paper cuts and limited edition screen prints, Rob Ryan has gone from strength to strength. Ryan tells heartfelt stories through his art; some amusing, some poignant, some melancholy. These works look effortless and whimsical but they are painstakingly crafted. He cuts each paper cut carefully by hand, and his prints display a masterful level of clarity and detail.
Ryan’s intricate and beguiling paper cuts have acquired a huge public following as well as influencing the commercial media. He has collaborated with high profile figures in the fashion world including Lulu Guinness, Tatty Devine, Liberty of London, Paul Smith, Elle and Vogue. His designs illustrate his own books This is For You and A Sky Full of Kindness and The Gift, a poignant children’s tale by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
Mixing It Up Down On Good Old Planet Earth was originally created as a paper cut and is a poetic evocation of our mortal journey seen through the metaphor of a map of the land with all its complexities.
