Overview

Comic book creator as well as fine artist, David Ryan was born, 1965, Bayonne, New Jersey. Raised on a menu of comic book culture fused with iconic Rockwellian imagery, Dave Ryan began taking art lessons as a child and at the age of 18 saw an exhibition of Vincent van Gogh’s postimpressionistic paintings, which helped inspire him to become a painter. His body of work focuses primarily on painting portraits, fusing a realistic, larger than life iconic image laden with a Lichtenstein-esque undertone adorned with semi-impressionistic techniques. These images represent a very human, undeniable view of the subjects, given the scale of attention to the brushstroke itself, while also presenting a rather grand, iconic view of the sitters, given the monumental and confrontational quality of the works. He has received his BA in 1991 from New Jersey City State College, in Jersey City, NJ.
