Printmaker Rob Ryan opened this lovely gallery/shop in summer 2008. Tiles, printed tissue paper, screen-prints, paper cut-outs, cards, wooden keys, limited-edition prints, vases, Easter egg cups, even skirts and T-shirts, all bear his distinctive, fun graphics and words – with phrases such as ‘I thought you didn’t like me’ or ‘The stars shine all day as well’ printed on many of the covetable items. Collaborations have seen his work appear on skateboards, necklaces and even Paul Smith pumps. Aside from his shop work, Rob has also recently customised a Lomo ‘Diana’ camera, relocated his entire workshop to Somerset House for two weeks, and auctioned his work for the Marine Conservation Society; details of his latest exploits can be found on his blog http://rob-ryan.blogspot.com.
