One to Watch: Ryan Coleman


Fascinated with abstraction, Ryan Coleman artfully combines elements of cartoons, nature, design, graffiti, and art history in his paintings. He uses line, shape, and color in order to convey an underlying narrative and hints of imagery. His paintings possess a sense of dynamic movement in part due to his thick, gestural brushstrokes and vibrant color palette.

Ryan grew up in Jacksonville, Florida, and graduated with a BFA in painting from the Atlanta College of Art in 2001. He lived in Brooklyn, NY for eight years, where he worked as a full-time assistant to the artist Jeff Koons. He returned to Atlanta in March 2011, and the following month the Museum of Contemporary Art in Hot Springs, Arkansas, hosted his first solo museum exhibition.
