Greater Harrisburg's Community Magazine

Artist in Focus: Ryan Spahr

In describing the artwork of Ryan Spahr, the word “versatile” immediately comes to mind.

Ryan creates in a wide range of styles, for many types of clients, employing a variety of media. His aesthetic can be described as bold, expressive and experimental.

Ryan might be known best for his work in ethanol inks, but he also has worked extensively in oil, pastel, pen and ink and photography. Did we mention that he’s also a gifted tattoo artist?

Here at TheBurg, we’re very familiar with Ryan’s talent, as he’s contributed to our magazine many times, even winning several Keystone press awards. You also may have seen his commercial work for such Harrisburg-based companies as Zeroday Brewing Co. and Elementary Coffee Co.

We hope you enjoy this small sample of Ryan’s extensive body of work. To see more, visit or @old1eye on Instagram.
