    Details

    Ryan Callanan - the man behind iconic street print-artist RYCA - is known for his graphic creations and 3D crafts. Drawing on his career as a sign writer, Callanan works with a wide range of materials, incorporating glass, resin and gold leaf (amongst others) to create tactile works of art with a contemporary twist. Callanan’s work is distinguished by its merging of cultural references, taking one image or concept and transplanting it into the context of another, to create a sense of off-kilter familiarity. ‘Heart Eyes - Gold’ is stylistically reminiscent of the traditional English pub sign - a motif that features in much of Callanan’s graphic work - but consciously references 90s acid house culture, through its use of the smiley. In an extra twist of context, Callanan has given the 90s icon a 00s update, adding big, heart shaped eyes in a nod to emoji culture. The piece is powerful in its minimalism: a hard, black background emphasises the smiley face, which has been created in bas-relief and inlaid with gold. The sense of depth and surface texture is striking and the final result is both bold and beautiful.
