Ryan Mosley (b. 1980) trained at the University of Huddersfield and Royal College of Art. Motivated by a sense of the carnivalesque, Mosley’s canvases offer up a surreal world of invented characters and rituals that are simultaneously archaic and futuristic.
Mosley has been represented by Josh Lilley since 2020, 11 years after his appearance in the gallery’s inaugural show and a decade in which he presented multiple solo exhibitions at Alison Jacques, London; Tim Van Laere, Antwerp; and EIGEN + ART, Berlin and Leipzig. He participated in the important figurative painting survey Radical Figures at the Whitechapel Gallery in Spring 2020. Ryan Mosley lives and works in Sheffield.
