My name is Ryan Donato, I’m 21 and I live in New York. I have a hard time saying no to petting a dog and eating Chinese food. I am inspired by vibrant colors, the firm desire to capture them, and the subconscious.
My work is a mix between the two lines of abstraction. Gestural abstraction which relies on energetically applied pigment and chromatic abstraction that focuses on color’s emotion resonance. I emphasize on the creative process, rhythmic drips, splatters, dribbles that envelope the viewer into a lacy spiderweb.
