Review of Ryan Mosley
Ryan Mosley is an English painter in his early 30s. In this, his third solo show at this smart Fitzrovia gallery, Mosley portrays tribal and ethnographic subjects with a vivid palette and bold application of pigment. The result often has an element of humour, as well as a creepy, sinister undertone that one cannot quite put one’s finger on. Well worth seeing.
