Ryan Bubnis will work with just about any material he can get his creative hands on. Whether it is a leftover scrap of sand paper, wood, or vinyl, or an object found on the side of the road. It is this inherently DIY and don't-waste-a-thing artistic candor that allows Bubnis to manipulate these varied objects into oddly shaped faces and abstract, pattern driven illustrations, paintings, and designs.
“I’m often at odds with my knowledge of art making versus my intuition. I’m constantly critiquing work in order to discover what makes a successful image. As a result, I’ve pared-down and simplified my imagery with an emphasis on shape-based art making,” says artist, Ryan Bubnis.
