From the Earth’s largest mammals to its tiniest insects. Ryan’s artistic ability to capture the beauty of wildlife is mesmerising.
His drawings appear frozen in time and yet manage to jump off a plain white canvas.
The minimalistic background allows him to focus on every minute detail of his subject; from a huge barnacle on humpback’s fin to the fine spindle hairs on a bee’s back.
One look at Ryan’s work and it is clear his inspirations span the wildlife documentaries of Sir David Attenborough and the simplicity found in animals drawings of a child’s picture book.
We live on a planet where the extinction of certain species of animal is a real threat. What Ryan’s work does is open our eyes to the magnificence of these creatures.
