The Midnight Archive - Episode 17: The Art of Ryan Matthew Cohn
One of the most fascinating people I’ve met in the last 2 year is Ryan Matthew Cohn. In this episode, we take a quick tour of his home that is one of the most surreal places I’ve ever visited in my hometown of Brooklyn, NY. Shrunken Heads, Jarred pickled specimens, mummified cats and yes, LOTS of skulls elegantly LITTER Ryan’s amazing 3rd floor walk up. Every inch of his space is masterfully decorated down to the woodwork. We also get a sneak peak at Ryan’s creative process in his work space. Have a look as he takes us around his collection and lets us peek into his charming life… Expect more from Ryan as this series develops!
