ABOUT

RYR is a German artist who initially started out on the streets where he was honing his artistic skills through graffiti painting. Before long, he made a bold decision to move into the studio where he continued to explore his creative interest in contemporary mediums, resulting in an art form. RYR makes his artworks out of money – handcrafted paper made of cellulose and banknotes from around the world. His recent approach is in highlighting the next kind of money. As the artist himself is a strong believer in decentralized cryptocurrencies he’s showing keywords and generated quotes of the crypto community. RYR’s use of typographic riddles are a clever comparison to the block by block system of blockchain technology. Those cryptic words, constructed from mixed media on top of shredded FIAT currencies are telling us that cryptocurrency is here to stay.
