Ryan Callanan Biography

Ryan Callanan

Sign writer and 3D model-maker Ryan Callanan has developed a distinctive style, combining contemporary pop culture with the iconic symbolism of traditional typography. 

In homage to the lost art of pub signage, Callanan conveys his street-art inspired messages on hand-etched glass, set in ornate gilt frames, for an aesthetic that is at once modern and classical. 

As RYCA, his artistic alter ego, Callanan also creates limited edition prints, which have a reputation for their high demand. These pop prints are known for their fusions of contemporary cultural iconographies, placing unexpected references in dialogue with one another for a novel take on the art of nostalgia.
