Biography


Ryan S. Brown is an American painter in the naturalist tradition.  After graduating BYU, Ryan went on to study classical painting in Florence, Italy at the Florence Academy of Art, where upon graduation he won the Painting of the Year and Presidents awards.  Returning to Utah after his studies in 2008, Ryan opened the Masters Academy of Art in Springville where he passes on the methods and practices within the tradition of classical painting.  Ryan’s work contains the time-honored qualities of craftsmanship in drawing, color and composition that, although true to the tradition and heritage of painting that pays homage to past masters, have a uniquely current feel.  His works reach past culture, race or religion to connect on a human level with viewers.  Often painting the commonplace or the familiar, he allows us to see our world from a new perspective and gain insights into moments often overlooked. He reminds us to stop and see, to think, to dream and to embrace.  These human moments provide us with something that, in today’s world of instant gratification and social media, are all the more important.  His works remind us of our connection as human beings.  They demand pause, contemplation and consideration that moves us far beyond the pleasing images.  His works are in public and private collections all over Europe, North America and Australia.
