Mythical Meets Metal Meets McCallister
Scottsdale & Anthem Arizona Edition
Ryan McCallister, fine artist, featured in February 2017 Issue of Images Arizona magazine. Written by Katherine Braden and photographed by Loralei Lazurek, “Mythical Meets Metal Meets McCallister” is published in both North Scottsdale and Anthem, Arizona editions.
The four page spread featured works including large scale, landscape sculptures such as ‘Jormungandr‘, ‘Ascendance‘, ‘Majestic Moose‘ and smaller, earlier works of McCallister such as ‘Japanese Dragon‘ from Steel Nail series.
“The best way to describe Ryan McCallister as an artist? ‘I’m brand spanking new,’ he says, ‘but I know I’m talented enough to show everyone my work and be proud of it.'”
“He mostly works with steel, both scrap and pristine, welding with a torch. For the table-sized pieces, work can be tedious. Sometimes it takes him two week to complete. For the larger pieces? Usually a month each.”
“‘My favorite part [about being an artist] is when people look at my art and they’re stunned,’ he says. ‘That makes me really happy’… ‘I want to make people happy with my art,’ he says. ‘The biggest reward is all the support!'”
