This is the eighth of ten artist profiles we’re presenting as we lead up to our Vinyl Artist Poll
in which we’ll ask you to vote for the artist you’d most like to see
work in vinyl. The poll is strictly for fun and to get a read on what
you like art wise. Click on each of the paintings to read a description of the piece by the artist.
Chris Ryniak was born as a baby in 1976 in the suburbs of Detroit. He spent his childhood basking in the warm glow of Saturday morning cartoons and flipping over rocks in search of insects, reptiles and ghosts.
A graduate and former instructor of the Ringling School of Art and Design, he is now a painter and sculptor of all manner of critters. Chris’ work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the US including Miami, Los Angeles and New York City, as well as Hamburg, Germany. His paintings have also been published in numerous books and periodicals in the States as well as in Europe and Singapore.
Chris now resides in a coastal Ohio Dutch Colonial with his wife, two children, dog, cat and Venus Flytrap. Sadly, no ghosts as of yet.
