The Other Art Fair

Director’s Pick: Ryan Murray

The Other Art Fair Dallas Online Studios

Director’s Pick for the Week of May 12

Ryan Murray

Under the alias “Rywando Jones,” Ryan Murray creates spray-paint stencils to destigmatize mental illness—particularly in black communities, where its incidence is high and largely untreated. Drawing on his own photography, an internal symbology, and pop culture, he calls attention to the factors that contribute to cycles of “silent suffering” among people of color, with the hope of normalizing treatment.
