“We are all going through something. Be grateful that you are here to go through it.”  Although the Fridge is known for representing “street artists” Mr. Ryan is an artist who is from the streets.

Self-taught, and inspired by the individuals he meets during his daily trek to set up and sell his work directly to the public as a street vendor in Washington DC. Mr. Ryan has made and sold hundreds of original paintings, customized hats and Chucks in the three or so years he has been making art full time.

The artists first-ever-anywhere gallery show will consist of his trademark bright colors and jovial themes, using what he describes as “bright colors to represent positivity and stepping forward, no matter what is going on in your life.”This is artwork that audiences find irresistible and you will too. This show is “cash (or credit) & carry” – meaning you can take home your purchase right away!

Stay tuned for a special event calendar with workshops for kids of all ages. Exhibit will be on view through March 6, 2019 and is free and open to the public.

The Fridge is located off 8th Street SE, Barracks Row in Eastern Market in the alley at 516 1/2 8th Street SE Washington, DC 20003.  Visit the gallery online at
