We have just added a massive haul of super limited Ryca Carded figures to the shop.

Get them while they are hot as they won’t hand around for long.

RYCA places much importance on cross referencing within his art work, combining street art and pop art cultures together in these limited edition art pieces.

RYCA’s work uses star wars iconography to put an ironic spin on nostalgia as high art, and uses visual equations that create jokes with political and pop references, making his art pieces refreshingly comic and accessible.

ToyCon UK 2015 – RYCA

682 1024 dan

Very excited to announce the 5th of our six artist roster for ToyConUK 2015. The smiley face obsessed Ryca. Firstly a bit about Ryans work and history…

Ryan Callanan is an artist working in contemporary printmaking and graphics. Already a prominent artist on the Street Art scene, the last FEW years have seen Ryan move away from this aesthetic towards a new practice that draws upon his in-depth knowledge of materials and craftsmanship acquired through his training in industrial model making and 3-D design. From the starting point of the emblematic visual sign, Ryan began a series of works using the smiley face synonymous with acid house rave culture in the 1980s. Working in bas-relief, this iconic motif was recontextualised by rendering it in material and style usually associated with traditional pub signs – gold inlay and black lacquered background. This highly technical skill obtained and finessed through Ryan’s parallel career in the sign making industry. This lead to a series of works in this visual style of the subverted pub sign, playing with further motifs such as the Cherry and the Watermelon of a fruit machine, again their meaning sent array using this simple visual pun. Ryan chose symbols to begin with as a means to accessibility, this is art that everyone can enjoy and understand the reference point. There is a common theme that has run throughout his practice, which has seen him draw upon a broad spectrum of contemporary popular culture, including film, music and art history in work that is often refreshingly comic and accessible. From symbols Ryan progressed this visual aesthetic onto text, using colloquial words or phrases such as “fanfuckintastic” or quotes from song lyrics that were personally significant, such as 90s hip hop and rap, all in an appropriate pub style font. Important to all Ryan’s work to date is this concept of the cross reference: taking one item out of its context and splicing it with another to create something that feels familiar but whose meaning is subtly shifted. This is used to great effect by Ryan’s use of the pub sign style, something so atmospherically nostalgic and locked in the collective British psyche it becomes an unconsciously absorbed reference point against which the words or symbols can react. Ryan continues to progress his artistic practice and is working on new projects with song lyrics as well as numerous public commissions.

Ryan kindly delivered a bunch of stuff to us this week, which we will have up for grabs on our stand at ToyConUK this year. Details as follows…

  • Acid Tropper – Carded 3D Resin Figure – £25 each, we will have 5 available.
  • 1/12 Chrome Squares – Chromed Ashley Wood Square – £25 each, we will have 6.
  • Chromed Bullet Container – 1 off chromed and hand weathered Ashley Wood Bullet – £75.
  • Long Suffering Trooper – 18″ Resin Sculpture. We will have 1 gold and 1 silver available, each from an edition of 25. £375 each
  • We also have 6 Storm Trooper head pendants. Which will be given away with the first 6 Ryca purchases.

We are really excited to see what the ToyScene makes of Rycas take on contemporary pop art.

See you all at ToyConUK!

I tried to get Mimic to leave is with a detailed hypotheses, but all he said was the following “Its been fun and i wrote a lil song: Deadventure time,

And skin the Human,
The Screams’ll never end,
It’s Deadventure Time! “
