Meet the artist

Hello, I’m Ryan Johnson, a Graphic Designer and Illustrator from Wales, UK. This project ‘Icons of our world’ draws inspiration from various sources including my passions and interests; travel; the exploration of new places and environments; and observations of daily life - all captured in a moment.

In 2020, as a result of the Covid pandemic and spending a significant amount of time at home I decided to start digital painting. 12 months later, my art shop Icon Prints was born. My work investigates the thin line between art, design and engineering, showing how these concepts sometimes merge into each other without fixed borders.

Each collection explores a passion or love of mine, from global architectural landmarks to some of the most iconic and exclusive cars ever created. All of my paintings take inspiration from my own experiences and observations. Each piece I create is a reminder of a special memory or moment in my life; be it travel, sport, painting rare cars for their lucky owners, or simply exploring my favourite film genre, which I get to produce through my unwavering passion for design.

I hope you enjoy this expression of me, and this project can inspire you to seek out and find the beauty in all that surrounds us every day.
