Creating works of art for as long as he can remember. Ryan Crawley continues to create new pieces to catch viewers in awe. The bold color choices and brush strokes are meant to give the a sense of direction, but not directly lead the eye. Driving through Chicago was a major influence on his style. The colors, line, and speed still have a direct correlation with how each piece is created.
Crawley’s current series is based around animals. The pieces provide a sense of playfulness and mystery. The backgrounds are signifying the environments that humans are encroaching upon, which in turn is affecting nature. Ryan has never used art as a forward way to drive conversations, the work is there to make people have their own conversation with the artwork. He wants the viewer to come to their own conclusion.
