RYR

Reuven Schockner aka RYR, is a German author who initially started out on the streets where he was honing his artistic skills through graffiti painting. Before long, he made a bold decision to move into the studio where he continued to explore his creative interest in contemporary mediums, resulting in an art form that, it could be said, has an extra value. RYR makes his artworks out of money – not entirely out of usable banknotes, but also from handcrafted pieces of paper. His artworks contain symbols that are already present in our everyday life – Schockner just juxtaposes them and combines them with texts and letters that add a creative message.
