Ryan Browning is an American painter and interdisciplinary artist was born in Houston, Texas and living in Doha, Qatar. His paintings have a way of simplifying imagery to a cartoonish state without losing the specificity of the objects he is portraying. He draws inspiration from virtual and role playing game worlds, often portraying these imaginary spaces without the presence of figures, as if they had just walked out of frame. In painting, he works in a Miroesque style of flattened, layered subject matter, painting in both gouache and oil. His sculptures and time-based works rely on a variety of digital tools to extend the whimsical alter-reality of these paintings into real space.
