Ryan Folan

Ryan Folan is an Irish born, LA based artist. He served in the United States Army, deploying twice to Iraq. His experiences overseas as well as his transition to civilian life are a pivotal element in his work. His haunting paintings bring together on one canvas the mental and physical layers of veterans and civilians. While his work is not solely war related, it is never calm. Painting people from the inside out, his work is often static, intimate, and foreboding.
