Ryan Myers
Her Majesty, Oil on Canvas 9" x 12"
The Path Less Chosen, Oil on Wood 8" x 8
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.
