Jacob (yikes) Ryan is a Christchurch based artist who works in a range of artistic fields, including design and illustration, acrylic and mixed media paintings and larger aerosol based works. Jacob has been involved in the Christchurch graffiti scene since 2005 and has collaborated with many of the local artists around the city. Many of his works were destroyed in the recent earthquakes and since then Jacob has been involved with bringing public art back to the city.
Since graduating with a diploma in fine arts from the Design and Arts college NZ in 2010, Jacob has been working on a number of commissioned murals and canvas works for local businesses. Jacob’s work consists of strange characters and organic letter forms combined with a number of abstract techniques. He predominantly works with a freestyle approach, beginning with a basic plan and developing it as his work flows.For more information see Jacob’s website.
