Artist Portfolio Magazine’s 20 Art Competition
Ryan Doran – Martinez, CA
Ryan Doran’s paintings fuse the grittiness of the street with the traditional graffiti stencil style, combining paint and paper, darkness and light, music and street ethos to create a mosaic capturing the beauty and urban decay you pass every day.
Studying art in its basic forms and creating print work for the Seattle music scene led to the creation of the layered, intense and intricate work seen today. Iconic and ironical poster art is uniquely layered within an intricate dark color palette fused with imagination, graffiti and modern typography. The canvas captures a fantasy-scene combining day dreams and traditional street art uniquely in paint, paper and canvas.
