Featured in Southwest Art Magazine’s “21 Under 31” as a young artist to collect!
Rising talent, Ryan Cannon, was born and raised in Logan, Utah. The son of an interior designer, he showed early visual promise, which his parents cultivated with travel to museums. Cannon completed a BFA degree from Utah State University in painting and drawing, on a teaching fellowship, and enlarged his knowledge of art with study abroad in Germany, and travel to European museums.
Southwest Art selected Ryan Cannon as an important young artist nationally, in its “21 Under 31” September 2017 issue. In the spring of 2018, he was honored to have two paintings accepted into the competitive Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art, and was featured in the catalogue.
Cannon’s red rock, garden and pasture scenes, have already shown great popularity with collectors. The paintings have a distinctive character—with a simplification of forms, matte texture, and exquisite color sensibility. Ryan Cannon shares, “My art is a visual journey of shapes, texture, color and value.”
