This July, Scarborough-based artist Ryan Chadwick will bring his visions of the world’s creatures to the Yorkshire Arboretum in stunning detail. From 19th July to 2nd August, the arboretum will host an exhibition of work by this unique and gifted local artist.
A young artist indeed, Ryan studied for a degree in Fine Art 2009-2012, which afforded him the opportunity to explore and develop his artistic style. Initially inspired by the Russian constructivist movement – where he began producing pieces that in his own words “focussed on impossible machines and structures” – his interest in the natural world brought him to his current style. The wildlife documentaries of Sir David Attenborough have profoundly impacted his approach, mixing anatomical accuracy with the eye-popping simplicity of a child’s animal picture book.
