Ryan runcie

Being born to Jamaican parents in small-town Texas, Runcie is studio artist, muralist and painting instructor local in Austin, Texas. He feels “fortunate to have the confusing experience of growing up as a biracial, first-generation American man…I was able to, in my youthful ignorance, test and blur lines that I didn’t know existed.” His art is a tenuous and experimental engagement in blurring these lines on a public scale; allowing the loose expression of color to side step the mind’s need to categorize and understand in accordance with race, ethnicity, and stereotypes.
