What museums and art galleries will tell you is that art is serious. And it is true, art can be serious. Canvases can speak of wars and communal strife — internal doom.
But that’s not all art can be of course and that’s where illustrator and printmaker Ryan Duggan comes in. Duggan’s work is hilarious. Simple and straightforward design — bold shapes and a dash of color. Direct. His drawings have an overzealous enthusiasm, child-like.
They’re visual jokes, but just the punchlines. Just the yuks.
His posters are all gut — punk rock and street worthy. His gig posters update the black and white photocopies stapled to streetlights of major and minor cities. He has a clear vision and creates all types of brilliance with a few colors and black lines.
In Duggan’s world all great diners are summed up by his simple poster, ‘Good Food, Great Toilets‘ and that’s the kind of art we should all be able to get behind.
