This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mark Ryden was born on January 20, 1963 in Medford, Oregon, but grew up in Southern California. He received a B.F.A. in 1987 from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Mark's paintings are intended to trigger a warped deja vu. His work recalls a parallel universe of 1950s Golden Books and the whimsy of Lewis Carroll. His cheery bunnies, rendered in the glowing hues of childrens books, are likely to be carving slabs of meat rather than frolicking in the forest. Rydens work mingles unique technique with images that create a world of strange and disturbing beauty. "At once intriguing and unsettling, baffling and enchanting, [Rydens] works ... are subtle amalgams of many sources and influences as wide-ranging as Psychedelic and Vienna School artists Neon Park and Ernst Fuchs, to classical French formalists Ingres and David." Rick Gilbert-Panik

Mark was part of a very creative family. His father, Keith, made his living painting, restoring, and customizing cars. Marks mother, Barbara, while dedicated her life to raising her 5 children, was always busy with a creative project and encouraged her children in the pursuit of art. Marks older brother KRK, an underground artist notorious in the counter culture, gave Mark an early introduction to art.

Marks paintings are owned by collectors from Australia to Sweden. A few of his clients include Stephen King, Leonardo DiCaprio, Patrick Leonard, Ringo Starr, Danny Elfman, Kirk Hammett, Paul Leary, Chris Carter, Don Was, Kidada Jones, Bridget Fonda, Henry Selik and the famous anti-mogul Long Gone John.

Currently, Mark is living in a magic house in Sierra Madre, California with his l wife Carolyn, his son Jasper, and daughter Rosie. You can find him late at night in his studio among his many trinkets, statues, skeletons, saints, and old toys that he collects for inspiration.
