As you amble down Columbia Road, admiring the repetition in the Victorian terraced houses and the cobbled street that takes you back to a bygone era, you’d be forgiven in thinking that you’d just walked on to the set of a wartime drama. Along side the famous Columbia Road Flower Market this wonderfully preserved street in East London is home to some brilliant little independent shops.
Ryantown is the shop come gallery of cut out artist Rob Ryan. As a matter of opinion I love all of Rob Ryan’s work, his intricately cut masterpieces usually carry a meaningful quote, most of the time the sayings on Rob’s pieces are heartfelt or uplifting but can sometimes be somber or wistful.
If you’re traveling to London and looking to take something back for a beloved friend or family member, you’re sure to find something that hits the spot in this quaint little shop. From original prints to ceramic tiles and childrens wall charts, you’re sure to enjoy taking your time browsing.
