David Ryan (b. 1971) gleans inspiration from the slick colors and lines of cars, electronic gadgets and household appliances to transform mundane, undesirable MDF into luxurious, enticing wall-sculptures. By creating multiple (literal) layers, Ryan explores the way line; shape and shadow interact to produce perceptual conundrums that intrigue his viewer. Ryan earned his MFA ('03) from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. His work has been exhibited widely across the United States.
The artist currently lives and works in Las Vegas, Nevada.
