DTA Dunny Show 2 Artist Profile: Chris Ryniak
Chris Ryniak has been sculpting and doodling creatures for many years. He is known for his adorable creatures with lovable expressions and big eyes. He has previously worked with Kidrobot to create the popular “Meltdown” Dunny. We are excited to work with Chris again for the DTA Dunny Show 2!
Chris Ryniak was born in 1976 in the suburbs of Detroit. He spent his childhood basking in the warm glow of Saturday morning cartoons and flipping over rocks in search of insects, reptiles and ghosts. A sculptor and painter of all manner of critters, he has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the world. His work has also been published in numerous books and periodicals in the US as well as in Europe and Singapore. Chris is also a toy-designer and sculptor of numerous instantly sold-out editions of designer art toys and figures.
We can’t wait to see what the final Dunny will look like for the show!
