By David O’ReillyThe artist’s work is titled “Mixed Media, Mixed Context”, and was created in 2011 by a British artist named Paul Ryszard.
Rysward was inspired by the works of other artists, including Damien Hirst and John Cusack, in an effort to create a mix of both the literal and figurative.
The artist is a graduate of London’s Metropolitan Institute of Art, and has a background in photography and sculpture.
“I was thinking about the difference between what is seen and what is perceived,” Ryssward told the BBC.
“In the past, people would go to the movies and see what the big stars look like.
Now they see all these different kinds of faces, and they say, ‘This is great, I like it!'”
Ryswards work was created to represent the changing world of modern life.
“I wanted to do something that was both abstract and minimalist,” he explained.
“It’s about creating a mix between a more modern aesthetic, and a very specific, very personal style.
In the film, the photographer and I go into a hotel room.
The photographer takes a picture of the room, and we have a conversation.
In the picture, I’m saying ‘You’ve got the most beautiful clothes you’ve ever worn, you’ve got a great room.
You look so perfect, you have this perfect haircut.'”
The photographer then tells me, ‘I like the way you look.’
“And so I’m like, ‘Well, that’s great, but it’s not my style.'”
The two men talk about what they’re wearing, and the photographer asks Rysweards advice.
A few days later, the pair are standing in a hotel lobby, and he’s taken the photo.
He’s not happy.
After that, he goes into the room and goes through his wardrobe.
I think I’ve gone through his closet.
I’m not really sure.
“Rysswards clothes look like this: He says it’s like he’s just walked through a room full of clothes.
The photographer doesn’t like it.
Rysws clothes are just like the ones in the movie.
Rieswards headgear is like this.
Riesward is also an artist with a strong connection to nature.
He created a series of sculptures called The Forest of Trees, which are all about trees and the natural world.
He said he started to realize how important nature was to him.”
They all have a place. “
There’s so many species and species of plants and animals in nature.
They all have a place.
And it’s the same in this room.
We’re not going to be walking through it, but there’s something about it.”
Riesswards work has been exhibited around the world, and is currently on view at the London Museum of Modern Art.
It’s currently being auctioned on Facebook for a record-breaking price.
