Mark Ryden

Mark Ryden, is an artist, he was born in Medford Oregon. Mark's paintings are very creative showing a combination of fictional characters and cultural and historical icons like Jimi Hendrix and the American president Abraham Lincoln, who’s face is always present in most of his paintaings. His imagination shows clearly through his paintings, strange things are in his artwork pieces, such as, meat, blood teddy bears and animals.

The first painting is called "Goodbye Bear" which shows an event where a child and a bear is saying goodbye to each others, and almost about to cry.

The second painting is one of my favorite paintings, it is called "Night Visit", girl is sleeping in white dress and the devil is watching her.

  1. Love his illustrative style.
    Funny how the little girl is floating above the grass unlike the bear that's grounded
