Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Ryan B. Anthony knows the impact of growing up in an inner-city environment. Yet, in the pursuit of his passion, Ryan moved to New York City in 2006 not only in search of grander opportunities, but also to solidify his natural talent in the field of art of design, style, makeup and hair artistry. Bryant Park not only set the stage for New Yorks infamous fashion week in February 2006, but it also allowed Ryan to prove the talent that he worked so hard at perfecting over the years. There in Bryant Park, he was afforded the opportunity to do hair and makeup for his first New York based fashion show. Since then Ryan B has done work for various designers such as Bill Blass, Erin Featherson, Ashley Stewart, Cynthia Steffe, Obedient Sons, etc. He has also worked with some of the most prestigious photographers, producers, fashion icons and stylist, like Walter Chin and Donald Laurence, Lynda Carter, and Zoe Kravitz, and Supermodel Coco Mitchell just to name a few. Ryan B. Anthony believes in true artistry. His love for art, music and fashion is exhibited by means of his vision and thus transmitted into his work. Ryans inspirations include women of all shapes, sizes, and cultures; beauty both inside and out; nature, both seen and unseen; and even various periods of the past, those that inspire heartache and joy. Much like an inspirational painting, ones authentic and initial emotions towards life keeps him on his toes and better at his art. His mission is to open ones mind through pure fantasy, and to speak as a visual poet without words, and evoking one's inner masterpiece.
