Preview :: Ryan Dineen @ Show & Tell


Canadian artist Ryan Dineen is offering an inspired new collection of oils on canvas at Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto. “In The Peripheral” is the artist’s contemplation of the urban landscape. The process often begins with a photo reference; however, Dineen often engages his subjects, taking the time to learn about their lives: “I look at this series as my way of communicating my surroundings. I want to portray the charisma and individuality of my subject matter to the viewers, all the while leaving them to decipher their own feelings toward the work.” Starting as a graffiti artist, Dineen has adroitly employed sanctioned public murals to harness his voice. These ‘community’ projects can be appreciated in places like Melrose in Hollywood, to the artist’s neighborhood of Cabbagetown, Toronto. The show runs May 29-June 21. A preview follows:
