Louis Buhl & Co. is pleased to present a new print edition with artist Ryan Travis Christian, titled Bullet Knights. Christian's 1990s suburban Chicago upbringing offered up absurd experiences, which he uses as fuel for the surreal personal narratives in his pop-culture-influenced graphite drawings. He exposes the untidy lifestyle of contemporary humanity through a vast array of topics and imagery.
In this piece, Christian uses dark humor to explore the bleakest parts of the human condition, a common theme in much of his work. Impacted by Chicago-style figuration, Christian focuses on the paradoxical relationship between childish cartoons and ominous messages, musing on the technological and material obsolescence of his inspiration.
