Dave Ryan was born and bred in the wet dank forests of Washington State. He began stenciling in the spring of 2006 and started to refer to himself as the Manticore.
In the summer of 2008 Dave broke his neck while backpacking across the US. He had lost most of his fine motor functions and used stenciling as both a means to regain the use of his hands and as his sole income.
The Manticore has since made a full recovery, and his unique blend of silly pop art can be found in coffee shops, watering holes, and at Seattle's Fremont Sunday Market. The Manticore is available for custom portraits.
