"FATALES" MONOGRAPH

I am pleased to say that the design work has been completed on my upcoming monograph, FATALES: The Art of Ryan Heshka.

Set for a Fall 2017 release, this 282 page hardcover book spans my personal art from 2004 to the present.  Heavily edited to include only the best quality paintings and images, it represents what I consider to be the first phase of my personal art career.

Published by Cernunnos books (an imprint of Simon and Shuster), edited by Rodolphe Lachat and beautifully designed by Benjamin Brard.  Introduction by Fred Stonehouse and interview by Monte Beauchamp (of BLAB!).  This volume is set to be a major milestone in my career.

Watch for further news regarding the exact release date, previews, and signings.

updates

I have had some inquiries about when and where my next exhibition will be.  Due to the following three very large ongoing projects (and a baby), I am on leave from painting for any shows at the moment:

-painting a series of large format paintings for private collectors that will be exhibited at a later date

-working on a graphic novel-length follow up to the "Mean Girls Club" comic (which will also be published by Nobrow, UK)

-compiling images and essays for the first comprehensive monograph of my personal work (2005 to present), set for release in the Fall of 2017

I will be updating this site with new images, and for more immediate news and images, please check out my Instagram page (@ryanheshka).  Thank you.
