No Fun Intended says Ryan Todd, oh the irony we retort – Todd’s elegantly simple visual one-liners are all about fun. His colourful designs are currently brightening up the walls of Kemistry Gallery but are surely soon to be seen on a t-shirt near you.
Todd, a London-based artist and designer, is fond of playing with expectations and reinventing idioms through bold, uncluttered graphics. Through his eyes we see the world turned on its head; the child carries the father on its shoulders, the inanimate object takes on human characteristics, a phrase is misinterpreted or taken literally, all with a gentle, family-friendly cheekiness. No Fun Intended, Todd’s first solo show, will feature original works, prints, and objects, all numbered and signed by the artist and available to buy. Show your sense of humour a good time at the Charlotte Road venue until 29th June.
