Ryan Driscoll is interested in the personas of Greek and Roman mythology and the realms that these mythological figures embody. His paintings combine classical ideals of beauty with the symbolic language of still lifes, where objects hold individual significance in service of an allegory. Referencing storytelling traditions, music, and great works of literature widely, Driscoll amalgamates visualizations of queer identity often made in the spirit of melodrama and fantasy. 

He received his BA in Fine Art from the Camberwell College of Art, UAL, London (UK) in 2016. He is the 2018 recipient of the British LGBT Awards Art Initiative. His work has been included in exhibitions at Soft Opening, London (UK); Meredith Rosen
