My name is Ryan Callis.
Most of what I make are paintings, as I am heavily invested in the history and conversation of painting in particular. But the site also documents design work and other projects that I do for pay or pleasure or both. I post each piece individually and tell a little story about it to give you context. I don’t categorize my artistic output into bodies of work. I’m much more interested in each object I make living as it’s own little world.
I surf, father, and make art.
I have an old blog here, where I liked to post what is influencing me, and more in depth stories about individual works from a previous life….
