colette will presents the exhibition by Rob Ryan. He was born in 1962 in Akrotiri, Cyprus. He studied Fine Art at Trent Polytechnic and at the Royal College of Art, London where he specialised in Printmaking.
Since 2002 he has been working principally within the paper cutting medium. He has collaborated with Paul Smith, Liberty of London, Tatty Devine and Vogue along with many other established companies. His work, often consisting of whimsical figures paired with sentimental, grave, honest and occasionally humorous pieces of writing he readily admits are autobiographical.
Exhibitions have included “The Stars Shine All Day Too” at London’s Air Gallery on Dover Street, “Your Job is to take this world apart and put it back together again…. but even better!” – an exhibition of papercuts and ceramics at The Shire Hall Gallery Stafford – and recently an exhibition of ceramics at The Charleston Gallery. He has written and illustrated three books, “This Is For You”, “A Sky Full Of Kindness”, “The Invisible Kingdom” and illustrated “The Gift”.
