Padraic ?Paddy? Ryan is a Christchurch born painter, working in oil paint to connect realism and expressionistic mark making. He graduated his BFA (Hons) in 2019 from the Ilam School of Fine Arts in Canterbury, with world exploring dark, nocturnal scenes inspired by Hopper and also Film Noir. Currently he is working on a series of portraiture, with vibrant colours and only partial realism, without the need to be completely photo-real. He has a studio out the back of Chambers, and welcomes anyone to come and have a look.
