Artist Bio

Ryan Schmal Murray is an artist who creates conceptually-driven work that combines digital and physical media. His work addresses the search for meaning at the intersections of “high” and “low” culture and at the boundaries of different media.

Murray was born in Pittsburgh, PA. He received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Murray’s artwork has been exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, screening tours, and film festivals. Recent exhibitions include the Festival of (In)Appropriation (Los Angeles, CA, Edmonton, Canada, London, UK), Antimatter Media Art Festival (Victoria, Canada), Chicago Underground Film Festival, Montreal Underground Film Festival, Portland Underground Film Festival, Basement Media Festival Tour (ten cities in the US and Canada), and a solo show at Hood College in Frederick, MD. Murray lives in Baltimore, MD and serves as an Associate Professor of Electronic Media and Film at Towson University.
