Ransom McCarthy

Bachelor of Fine Arts - Painting

Art should be both fun and personal. With my work, I create engaging imagery inspired by comic books, animation, street art, graffiti, and punk and hip hop imagery, forming narratives for viewers to relate to and get lost in. I use fast, energetic marks, varying between solid blacks and primary colors to make my work, burning the images of my drawings and paintings into the eyes of the viewer.

The striking nature of my work explores relatable subject matter such as anxiety, societal expectations, and nostalgia. The world can often be a lonely and difficult place to exist, our surroundings can seem uninteresting and lifeless, and our thoughts can often paralyze us with doubt. I deal with this every day of my life, and my artwork is a rebellion against it. As an artist, my mission is to communicate this to those who view what I make, and reassure those who deal with similar experiences that they are not alone.
