Name: Ryan Seslow

Location: New Yawk, NY

Start date: It was in 1975 that I knew I was an artist. I made all of my friends by drawing cartoon portraits them. Still seems to go that way.
Influence: Old School Comic books from the late 1960’s and 1970s, Cartoons like Looney tunes, Hanna Barbera, Disney, and anything else that was on Saturday mornings TV from 1975-1985. Once I hit 11 years age Graffiti became my main artistic influence. Henry Chalfant and Martha Cooper’s Subway Art book was a huge influence. I drew every piece in that book for years! I also really loved Doze Green’s graffiti characters from that time as well. (And still do) I also love the work of Kurt Schwitters, Picasso, Barbara Hepworth, Matthew Barney, & Barbara Kruger to name a few.

Effect: I want my work to activate the creative potential of those who experience it. I want to show that there is always another way to experiment with materials, methods and subject matter. I want people to feel energized and inspired to take action and get busy!

Long run: Expanding, learning, sharing and expanding more to repeat that process. I love to collaborate with other artists and I have a new found love for curating and creating platforms for new ways that integrate technology and how exhibitions can be mounted.
