Visiting Artist's Talk — Ryan Mosley

For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk (VAT), we welcome Ryan Mosley.

Ryan Mosley is a painter who trained at the University of Huddersfield and the Royal College of Art, London, and lives and works in Sheffield. His figurative, narrative paintings synthesise art-historical themes with fantasy, the folk, the carnival and cabaret.

His recent solo exhibitions include ‘A Planet’s Revolution’ at Galerie EIGEN + ART, (Berlin, 2019), ‘Rival Poets’ at Galerie Mikael Andersen (Copenhagen, 2019), ‘Under Moon’ at Tim Van Laere Gallery (Antwerp, 2018) and ‘Anatomy of the Wall’ at Alison Jacques Gallery (London, 2016). His recent group exhibitions include ‘Radical Figures: Painting in the New Millenium’ at Whitechapel Gallery (London, 2020), the Drawing Biennial 2019 at Drawing Room (London, 2019), ‘Inter Youth’ at the Museum of China Academy of Art (Hangzhou, 2017).

His work is held in numerous major institutional and private collections, including Milwaukee Art Museum (US), Arts Council Collection (UK), Burger Collection (DE), Collecion SOLO (ES) and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (UK).

The Visiting Artists' Talks (VAT) series for 2020/21 welcomes guests across two semesters to join us live via Teams every Monday afternoon during teaching weeks.

Each session brings an arts professional to talk with us (as a community) about what they do and why, and to chat with the student body honestly about their career journey and interests.

All of our talks are compulsory for our Fine Art students but open to anyone else who would like to join us.

Join the live event on Monday via Microsoft Teams.
