Ryan Travis Christian

Ryan Travis Christian’s graphite drawings feature surreal narratives that are partly fueled by his upbringing in the suburbs. Chicago-style figuration, vintage political cartoons and hand-drawn animation influence the artist’s detailed vignettes. Exposing the untidy lifestyle of contemporary humanity through a vast array of topics and imagery, Christian’s work focuses on the paradoxical relationship between childish cartoons and ominous messages—while musing on the technological and material obsolescence of the artist’s primary inspirations.
