You can find contemporary artist Ryan Cronin's work hanging with Basquiat, Warhol, Haring and Hirst in Mallorca Spain. He has over 100 pieces of available work including a body of work created at Thread Artist Residency in Senegal.
In December of 2022, after a year-and-a-half-long curatorial process, Cronin's "Obama, Big Left" painting was accepted into the permanent art collection of the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago. We are thrilled and honored to have his piece be part of this world-class museum and be a part of history.
CronArtUSA, the brand behind the artist, oversees The Cronin Gallery + The Shop based in New Paltz, NY featuring a rotating exhibition of Cronin’s original works and an extensive product line with designs rooted in Cronin’s bold imagery. The product-line is grounded in Cronin’s belief that art should be in and of the world we live in and accessible to all.
From our headquarters at The Cronin Gallery, we are doing extraordinary things rooted in Ryan Cronin’s iconic artwork and driven by innovative partnerships with change-makers from around the world. Although we look and feel like a gallery, we are removing the barriers of the traditional art world by leading a shift in the way art is consumed; inviting you to be part of the art.
Ryan Cronin came into this world on a hot June night in 1972 in the front seat of a 60's Plymouth station wagon...
As a child, his father told him, "You can be the garbage man, you can be the president," and Ryan chose to be an artist, developing a career spanning 30 years, living life on his own terms and keeping his audience on their toes ever since.
September 2019, Senegal
Cronin spent thirty days in Senegal at Thread Artist Residency thanks to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
In many ways, Cronin's journey to Thread began through his work with Go Doc Go, a non-governmental, international medical organization (NGO) that works to prevent cervical cancer around the world.
