Ryan Browning: 20019
Houston born artist Ryan Browning currently lives & teaches painting at VCU’s campus in Doha, Qatar. Browning’s paintings have a way of simplifying imagery to a cartoonish state without losing the specificity of the objects he is portraying. He draws inspiration from video game worlds, often portraying these imaginary spaces without the presence of figures, as if they have just walked out of frame.
