I dropped by my friend Ryan De La Hoz's new studio the other day to take a glimpse at what he had been up to, because I knew it had been a lot- and I really just love his work. After being awarded the Beautiful/Decay Wet Paint grant along with a couple other artists: Skinner, Maya Hayuk, Dereck Albeck, etc, Ryan was just hours away from delivering a handfull of pieces to the StumbleUpon offices in SF. He was commissioned along with Kylea Borges to exhibit a new body of work in their space.
In addition, Ryan had been prepping for a 2 person show (with Mickael Broth) at Double Break Gallery in San Diego that opens February 17th, and filling the orders that have piling up for his line of apparel, Cool Try and his amazing new Black Fax shirt. Like I assumed, Ryan was up to his neck in all his new Canson paper and supplies from the grant and busy working to get everything off to his upcoming shows- thanks Ryan!! Go check out Double Break or check him out ONLINE!! BOOM!! POOF!
