Statement:
 

Ryan Thomas Monahan is from from Yorkville, Illinois. Utilizing a combination of physical and imaginative exploration Ryan creates miniaturized three dimensional portraits of urban landscapes. His desire to capture the beauty and grime of the world we live in is filled with moments of agony and glory.  ALL works are HANDMADE by the artist.

Look around, could you reproduce your environment using materials of no relation to their original purpose and fit it all inside a space the size of a shoe box? Construction is a difficult process; the required knowledge brings many different professions together. However, in this instance, Ryan is the ultimate construction worker – He does it all from the ground up at 1/24 the scale.

The majority of Ryan’s work portrays a fictional location. Creating a unique environment allows him to pull inspiration from visual and personal influences. It also allows him to consider using anything and everything for materials – Call him a “Junk Drawer Pirate”.
