grand master, cut faster


This weeks website belongs to the UK's Mister Rob Ryan... a cut above the rest, literally. We at hml have given him the exulted title "Papercut Pendragon "it's a title in it's inaugral year, but now we've put it out there it will be interesting to see if the competition heats up.

The imagery in Rob's work reflects both the nature and the method of his art, embodying the attention to detail and nostalgic references of the genre. But Rob twists them with a dark, sharp and cutting humour, often self referential and always slightly neurotic. His work is full of self doubt and wavers between melancholy and maudlin. This could be the outcome of spending hours alone hunched over a cutting matt, scalpel in hand... or the Irish parents. We love you Mister Rob. We promise.
