Jay Ryan

Downstairs, The Furnace Whales

$45.00


Based on a mis-heard Neko Case lyric, Jay Ryan's skilled depictions of animals and buildings come together. A massive brown whale bursts through a comparatively small building, cast in an aquatic blue-green light. Shingles, cinder blocks, and wooden siding burst willy-nilly from around the whale's frame. Each limited edition print is signed and numbered by the artist. Includes a border for convenient framing.

About the Artist

Jay Ryan learned about screenprinting from Steve Walters at Screwball Press in late 1995, where they worked together until 1999, at which point Jay started The Bird Machine print shop in the basement of his apartment building. Jay's initial clients were his friends' bands, his own band, and the clubs where they played. By stumbling into the right place at the right time, he fell in with a new movement of screenprinted poster makers across the country and around the world.
