We Love Rob Ryan
Rob Ryan is one of our favourite artists who we first became aware of about 10 years ago when we saw an exhibition of his work at the Horse Hospital in London. We then started seeing his work appearing on cards and posters more regularly and he became a ‘must have’ for Vintage Bluebird when we first opened.
A bit of background;
Rob Ryan was born in Cyprus in 1962, studied Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University and then printmaking at the Royal College of Art. He has become one of the foremost exponents of paper-cut and laser-cut artwork creating fantastic silhouette style pieces for which he is best known. He has worked in collaboration with Paul Smith, Liberty’s and Fortnum and Mason to name but a few. We also recently saw his work at Charleston House in Sussex with his unique decorative art and text on Staffordshire porcelain dogs.
We currently stock Rob Ryan porcelain mugs, plates and vases at our shop in Ashbourne and have the porcelain on the website as well. The cards are available through the shop only at the moment but we are working on getting these onto the website.
Rob Ryan has a three metre paper cut currently displaying at Nottingham Lakeside gallery ‘The First Cut – Paper at the Cutting Edge’.
