Pardee's Picks: The Art of Chris Ryniak

September 25, 2012

Detroit native slash critter-lover slash Sculptor slash illustrator slash great nerdy father Chris Ryniak is a man of few words. When I recently asked him about his art career, he simply said this:


"I was primarily a painter until a few years back I made the switch to doing mostly dimensional sculptural work, which has snowballed into a multitude of production toys and resin editions of my work. I love it. And I like ice cream, eggs and avocados."


I don't think much more needs to be said, especially considering that there might not be proper words in the English language that can describe the imaginative creatures that dwell inside his head and make their way into our world through his hands.
