More Information

Listen to the World features new works including a series of previously unseen papercuts and screenprints created for and derived from Ryan’s 2016 Rizzoli wall calendar commission; along with a limited edition, multi-coloured lasercut, exclusive to YSP. 

The exhibition also features significant works from Ryan’s repertoire, such as The Map Of My Entire Life, 2012, his largest papercut to date, created for Manchester Art Gallery’s touring exhibition, The First Cut. One of Ryan’s most popular works to date, Can We? Shall We?, 2010, also features. This large screenprinted version was first shown on London’s Dover Street in Ryan’s solo show, The Stars Shine All Day Too.

Ryan, born in Cyprus, lives and works in London. He studied Fine Art at Trent Polytechnic and at the Royal College of Art in London where he specialised in Printmaking. Although Ryan views himself first and always as a fine artist, his intricate papercut work adapts itself readily to many other mediums including ceramics, textiles, homewares and even jewellery. His work often consists of original figures paired with sentimental, grave, honest and occasionally humorous pieces of writing which he admits are autobiographical.
 
Ryan has exhibited widely across the UK and internationally and has collaborated with Paul Smith, Liberty of London, Tatty Devine and Vogue, along with many other established brands. Ryan has written and illustrated numerous books including The Invisible Kingdom and The Kingdom Revealed, the first two of a trilogy of books. The final book in Ryan’s trilogy, The Invincible Kingdom, will be published by Random House in October 2015 and accompanied by a talk and book signing at YSP on 30 October.
