Coming to America: Rob Ryan to exhibit in New York City

TAG is delighted to announce a Stateside collaboration with the Christopher Henry Gallery,  that will include new works by Rob Ryan. One of the most highly sought-after paper cut artists in the UK, Rob studied Fine Art at Trent Polytechnic and at the Royal College of Art.  Since 2002, he was been working principally in the paper-cutting medium and his elaborate papercuts have received universal recognition from private collectors to museums.  Rob has also appeared in high profile design collaborations with Liberty’s of London, Fortnum & Mason, Paul Smith, Tatty Devine and Vogue.  His papercuts illustrate his own books, 'This Is For You', (a romantic fairy-tale told through paper cut art), 'The Gift' (a beautiful, poignant children’s tale by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy) and more recently, 'A Sky Full of Kindness' (a story about love and overcoming our greatest fears).  Rob was also in the 2010 major museum show ‘Slash – Paper Under the Knife’ at the Museum of Arts and Design, NYC and his following grows from strength to strength in America.  The show opens at the Christopher Henry Gallery, 127 Elizabeth Street, Nolita on 10 May and runs until 24 June, 2012.  For further details, images and an invitation to the exhibition, contact Diana.
