Ryan Travis Christian

Ryan Travis Christian is an artist who pokes at societal taboos and fluffs up his intrusive ideas by going against so-called good taste in pursuit of a new type of sensation that can only be called tragic-erotic. Known for his sfumato-heavy graphite drawings, which often place anthropomorphic figures seemingly plucked from early 20th-century animation into sordid, soft-focus milieus. Christian is now magnifying his obsessive micro-transgressions in girthy paint: public satire at an impregnable scale, all while continuing his tendency to poke at the paradoxical relationship between childish cartoons and ominous messages created in a darkly distinctive style.
