Ryan Bock is an American artist who lives and works in New York City. Borrowing from the visual languages of Soviet Russia and Fascist Italy, Bock uses graphic stylization and his signature desaturated color palette to dehistoricize his subject matter. He points this style at everything from the German Expressionist film ​The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari ​to the post-9/11 American surveillance state. Bock has shown at numerous galleries both nationally––New York, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, and Oakland––and internationally in Paris, London, and Prague, including seven solo exhibitions. In 2019, Bock’s installation at SPRING/BREAK Art Show, and subsequent solo exhibition ​Somnambulist​ were featured by Hi-Fructose​ Magazine, ​ARTnews​, ​Observer​, and ​Artnet News.
