Chelsea College of Arts
Ryan Tennant is a London based artist who creates artwork in a variety of mediums, mostly painting surrounding ideas of nostalgia through the lens of his childhood growing up in Wichita Falls, Texas. Wichita Stadium is from a series of paintings based upon locations from around Wichita Falls. Through using Google Street View, he examines the changing ways we consume information and specifically our own memories. The artwork depicts the arid and alien nature of Google Street View, our tenuous links to the past and the vast Texan landscape.
