Ryan Runcie is a bi-racial, first-generation American artist whose inspirations come from his study of our philosophic beliefs and experiences that ultimately change how we value others and ourselves. He has many private works across the United States and public
murals in Texas. He has created work for The City of San Marcos, Endeavor Real Estate, Capital Metro, DCS Corporation, local businesses, and local non-profit organizations.
He is a studied color theorist and prolific artist. The study has helped him to constantly push his evocative artwork that uses color in a way that inspires the viewer to think more universally.
His portraits are inviting and expressive - dissolving the stigmas that skin tones initially register in our minds.
Ryan Runcie's work is a tenuously balanced play of color that pulls viewers in from afar before asking them to see with new eyes - cultivating a shift in perspective.
It is meant to be a comforting engagement that blurs social lines and gives us permission to make mistakes while engaging strenuous and, often temperamental, questions with a lighthearted initiation.
