Shopper’s Diary: Ryantown in London

Christine Chang Hanway September 08, 2011

Located on trendy Columbia Road in London, Ryantown offers a glimpse into the whimsical world of UK artist Rob Ryan. In his work, Ryan creates beautifully intricate images paired with sentimental, grave, honest, and often humorous words. Ryan is best known for his poignant paper cut designs and screen prints, which are transferred to fabrics, ceramic tiles, wallpaper, and even tape. For more information, go to Ryantown.
