Ryan Myers was born in Long Island, New York and trained at Hartford Art School. His playful, somber paintings grow out of an early obsession with Pee Wee Herman, Hanna-Barbera Laugh Olympics and the bad children from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory.
Populated by children still with indifference, leering animals and ominous shadows, the candy land of sweet pinks, greens and blues masks the all-consuming melancholy of the paintings. Ryan’s work can be found in various galleries across the United States and Europe. He currently lives and works in New York’s Hudson Valley.
