Ryan Kapp grew up in Columbus, Ohio where he spent his formative days drawing and skateboarding with his twin brother and friends. He studied studio art at both Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and the Columbus College of Art&Design. In 2000, he moved to Chicago to attend graduate school at Northwestern University. In his recent work, Ryan draws upon imagery from his travels and his native Midwestern surroundings and mixes it with a graphic sensibility. His prints & paintings explore ideas of reduction and stylistic juxtaposition that work together to create an environment driven by mood. Ryan currently resides in Chicago.
