Musings on the atmospheric work of Ryan Wallace

Ryan Wallace’s atmospheric works evoke meditative qualities that fluctuate between angst and serenity. Embracing ambiguity with a simultaneous sense of assembly and disintegration, his multi-faceted practice cultivates a sense of surface, texture and tone. Wallace’s works act as visual solutions to his own curiosities and meditations on systematic themes.

He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a recent recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foudation Grant. Wallace’s paintings, works on paper, installations and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries, museums and institutions across North America and Europe. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, and Amagansett, New York.

Daniel Arsham Explores Space in a Formless World

What’s art to an architect? Better yet, is an architect an artist? Does the matter of functionality pose an obstacle for creativity or does it simplify the process by sculpting necessary guidelines? Can a craft so technically inclined coincide with the limitless imagination?

Street Brilliance: Aakash Nihalani Connects the Dots

Take a closer look at Aakash’s work below.

Deep Inside of Leo Eguiarte’s Parallel Universe

Leo Eguiarte‘s work is like that of a grown-up child prodigy, someone who has sunken within the depths of his childhood fantasies and surrendered to its evolution. I envision him the type who doodled through class, overwhelmed by an equality of access to both left and right brain. More so than anything, his obscure portrayal of different life forms disclose him in this aspect.

Now living in norwich, UK, Anthony has a degree in printmaking and photomedia from the Norwich School of art and design and is a member of the Wafa collective.
