Artist Statement: I am a LGBTQ advocate, a prisoner rights activist, multiethnic native, artist, Irreverend, social worker, dreamweaver and an extrovert married to an introvert. I’m also a LA Dodgers fan. Right Brigade is a piece that communicates my belief Church in the US has become militant and protective of a divine force that seeks to liberate it from itself. Faith. Hope. Love. These are the shields we hide behind as Jesus calls us beyond the barriers and into the streets. Find more of Ryan’s art at beingrkp.com and follow him on Twitter at @rk_p.
