OUT FROM WITHIN

Ryan Rocha is a thinker. You could probably tell by the detail in his paintings. Raised in Sactown but residing in the Bay Area, Ryan cut his teeth as an artist at a young age. Influenced heavily by music, other artists, and his beloved grandmother, today much of Ryan’s personality is fueled through his art, making each piece, engaging and dynamic.

PAINTINGS BY LEONID AFREMOV

Paintings lightweight fascinate me. A series of deliberate (or perhaps whimsical) brush strokes that lead to a masterpiece. I want to see what goes on in a painter’s head. Do they know what they’re gonna do ahead of time, or do they simply build off of each previous stroke. Probably a combination of both. It’s the efforts of Leonid Afremov that got me pondering art at 4:38 on a Thursday. It’s amazing what colors and strokes can lead to.
