About the Artist
Ryan is an artist from Kildare, Ireland. He started to paint in the kitchen of his parent’s house, taught by his father. Since then, Ryan hasn’t been able to stop. Firstly, taking requests from friends and family; whether it was portraits of someone’s idol or of their lovable family pet then onto bigger and better things.
Ryan would spend a few days during the Summer on Stephen’s Green selling art and meeting others that he found he had a lot in common with. The first painting sold on the ‘Green’ by Ryan at the age of 17 was a portrait of Phil Lynott, from Thin Lizzy.
After painting for one year since his father’s teachings Ryan made his way into a competition called Sky Arts: Portrait Artist of the Year 2013. He made it through to the semifinals in Ireland, which was televised and he painted a live portrait of the young actor from a series called Moon Boy.
Now, Ryan continues to paint, not only for his own enjoyment, but for others, too. Recently, Ryan has had two exhibitions in Maynooth, Co. Kildare: the first in the Summer Festival, and the second in the local library. Ryan offers personal paintings of any kind.
Ryan is also the founder and artist of an Irish business called Paint and Paws Ireland where he offers personalized pet portraits.
Ryan’s art is definitely a recommended buy as his career is taking off by storm and selling all over the world. His prices are getting higher due to demand so now would be the best time to buy. Ryan’s colourful paintings make a great addition to any collection and make any interior seem brighter.
