Ryantown came about in the summer of 2008 when Rob received a call from a friend asking if he would like to take over the space on Columbia Road.
Rob’s inspiration is taken from artist inspired retail outlets as diverse as the Omega Workshops based in Fitzroy Square in London in 1913 to the Keith Haring Pop Shop in Lafayette Street NYC in the 1980’s.
The white walls of the shop create the air of a gallery space with a hand-painted tiled mural on one section, which has become much loved by all customers.
The shop is stocked with a selection of Rob’s intricate paper cuts, limited edition screen prints, and an ever changing range of handcrafted, small edition goods, all produced in Rob’s nearby studio.
Alongside these are examples of some of the many collaborative projects Rob has been involved in.
