Two things have intrigued Ryan Scardecchio his entire life: Creating art and the question of how he was able to create in the first place. As a digital artist from Philadelphia, Ryan gets most of his inspiration from questioning reality itself. "We just wake up one day and we are on this planet, no explanation as to why or how or if we came here before. There is so much we don’t know and can’t fathom, that we have to use our imagination to fill in the gaps, to make sense of it all.”
The surreal collages Ryan creates are a visual representation of his subconscious piecing together the unknown. "Making a collage is the purest form of creativity because there are no rules, no guidelines, nothing is off limits and absolutely anything is possible. The only limit I face is how deep inside my mind I’m willing to go to birth a new concept. How far in the fringes will I allow my mind to wander in order to get inspiration? Much like the universe we inhabit, I believe our conscious is Infinite, just waiting to be tapped in to, to be explored. My work is the digital manifestation of my inner explorations."Ultimately, Ryan’s main goal is to cause the viewer think outside the realms of possibility and start having them look to inside oneself rather than outside for the answers.
Having graduated from East Stroudsburg University in 2016 with a BA in Art and Design, Ryan is currently a graphic designer for Event Strategy Group, a brand experience agency that brings trade shows, user conferences, incentive pograms and kickoffs to life for their clients. Ryan has worked with brands such as Lenovo, Intel, Microsoft, HPE, Lincoln Financial and Google to create large and small scale graphics for their events. He has also been involved in the creative process/production for booth designs at E3, CES, HIMSS, Mobile World Congress + more.
