My name is Ryan Callis, and I am the choir conductor,

The Look Up Gospel Choir is the name of my over all body of work as a visual artist.  Think of it as the company name.  A visual choir made up of many forms of art making (members or voices) all singing in one accord to “LOOK UP!!!”.  Look Up!!! from our phones, our belly buttons, our feet, and to Look Up!!! to the radness that is afoot all around us.  It’s all happening right around us!!!

Most of what I make are paintings, as I am heavily invested in the history and conversation of painting in particular.  But the site also documents design work and other projects that I do for pay or pleasure or both…..

I have a blog here, where I like to post what is influencing me, and more in depth stories about individual work.
