Artist Bio

Bryan Kring is a graphic designer, letterpress printer and book artist in Oakland, California. He was first featured here at 23 Sandy in our Pop Up Now! show in October of 2010. Brian tells us, "When I was in my early twenties I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to be Ernest Hemingway with a bottle of rum in a grass hut on a beach in Cuba. I liked writing but I didn’t have any stories to tell. Instead I saw pictures so I took up painting. I went to art school and filled my home with canvases. When I ran out of space I turned to printmaking. I was seduced by the beauty of ink and paper and explored first etching and then later letterpress printing. Now, in my forties, as I play in the book arts I am having fun connecting the circle back to the writing."
