This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Ryan Mosley (b. 1980, Chesterfield, UK) is a narrative painter who uses pictorial cues — from beards to brick walls and top hats — as triggers for art historical reference, class commentary, and pure formalism. Mosley has been represented by Josh Lilley since 2020, 11 years after his appearance in the gallery’s inaugural show and a decade in which he presented multiple solo exhibitions at Alison Jacques, London; Tim Van Laere, Antwerp; and EIGEN + ART, Berlin and Leipzig. He participated in the important figurative painting survey Radical Figures at the Whitechapel Gallery in Spring 2020.
Ryan Mosley lives and works in Sheffield.
