As he notes: “I’m influenced by popular culture, particularly television and movies, and I’ve also always been a fan of comic books and collectible toys.

The characters in his paintings are often depicted sad and despaired with their bodies captured in some machine or other object and it is said that the artist attempted to depict the dark side of Japanese life through his surreal visions.
Mark Ryden’s work is simply phenomenal. A secret paradise where weird little characters with a fascination for the obscure and freaky reside. Seemingly innocent children are depicted in the most contradicting manner along with often vicious symbols or strange sights of the natural world.
Ryden’s work is most certainly striking. There is so much going on in his pieces that one can stare for hours and still discover hidden detailed aspects. A masterful work that has gained recognition in the modern art arena.
The artist lives and creates in Denver Colorado and her creative activities also include photography, fashion design and makeup art.
