Michael S. Ryan is a native of Iowa and has been a painter all his life. Trained as an abstract artist in the New York School tradition while at the University of Iowa, Ryan turned to representational painting in the early 1980’s after his exposure to the Bay Area painters of California, and painters like Wolf Kahn. Their successful fusion of high key color, representational imagery, and abstract forms became the inspiration for Ryan’s work. The style Ryan uses is a combination of all those elements coupled with very expressive brushwork and complex design.
