About the Event

Meet Bryan Craig, a fellow who's been brewing creativity since he could hold a crayon without eating it. He fancies himself as just a regular guy with a penchant for art, music, and gallivanting around the globe. Despite being born in Edmonton, he's sworn allegiance to Calgary for a whopping quarter- century. Art degree? Nah, he's got a diploma in Environmental Graphic Design, a relic from the ancient era of the 1990s that kicked off his two-decade-long stint in the graphics jungle. But then, one fateful day, he had an epiphany: enough with the clicks, time to embrace the strokes! And thus, the emergence of Ringo’s My Uncle artwork was unleashed to the unsuspecting world!

When it comes to inspiration, our friend here is a self-proclaimed aficionado of all things retro. His masterpieces are started by orchestrating both torn newsprint and meticulously hand-cut images into mind-bending collages that extend to all four sides of the canvas, like a controlled explosion of artistic brilliance. And within these collages—more mini collages? It's like a treasure hunt for your eyeballs, with surprises lurking in every nook and cranny! Western vibes, vintage anything, and rock 'n roll rhythms all contribute to the texture lurking beneath the painted cowboys and cowgirls - nifty ain't it? As a burgeoning artist, he is exploring various techniques like silkscreening, stenciling, and geli pad printing, with the aspiration of incorporating them into his repertoire. His foray into abstract asemic art, a sophisticated term for his captivating scribbles and doodles, further demonstrates his artistic curiosity. Amidst this exploration, one element remains steadfast: the unmistakable flair of Ringo’s My Uncle artwork. So buckle up folks, because this artistic journey is just getting started!
