While browsing Instagram one night I came across some wicked artwork that caught my eye. The pieces belonged to Ryan Hausmann who goes by @openroaddesign. As you can quickly recognize, he is a custom engraver that specializes mostly in chopper parts.
What caught my attention the most was his unique style. I’m no art critique but I’ve always had a thing for rough details. The work that Ryan does looks as if it was meant for the road and not just to be sitting behind a velvet rope.
Most of his craft is done out of his single bedroom apartment in Montreal Quebec. Even though he claims to be “shitty” at it, he loves painting and working with stained glass.
“I am a very shitty painter but I love doing it. Also, I used to do stained glass. I really miss that, all the color and textures. But only so much you can cram into a one bed room apartment and 24 hours.”
