AMERICAN, BORN 1983
Ryan Travis Christian riffs on vintage animation and the aesthetics of the Chicago Imagists in his darkly funny paintings and graphite drawings, all of which he renders in gray scale. The artist’s upbringing in suburban Chicago often serves as inspiration: Christian recasts domestic banalities as sites of surrealism, satire, and danger.
He has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, and Berlin and runs a thriving merchandise market through his website. By combining recognizable cartoon aesthetics with uncanny imagery and violent themes, Christian unravels tired American mythologies.
