Malcolm Ryan

Elected RCA 2013

Born in London in 1934, Malcom Ryan's family were evacuated during the Blitz to rural Norfolk. "My paintings are an attempt to record present day life as I see and experience it here in Britain. I try to avoid the sensational, but rather aim for a quiet, contemplative view on life. I choose to paint the ordinary world that I am familiar with, the unremarkable, the world outside the back door, scenes that we are all familiar with." He has lived in Ceredigion since 1998.
