Painterly Visions of a Lost Pulp Fiction World

Ryan Heshka’s otherworldly tributes to Golden Era sci-fi pulp novels have a campy, retro feel all his own. The colorful, acrylic on wood panel works, intimately explore themes of man vs. nature and man vs. technology… often looking at the disastrous consequences of their meeting. Each is heavily varnished and tagged with cut pieces from the pulp fiction of their inspiration, lending the appearance of book covers long forgotten. See more of his works or purchase one at

Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea. When not impressing people with his humbling humility, he can be found freelance writing, finding shiny objects on the internet, enjoying the company of much-appreciated friends and living out his nomadic nature. He is Managing Editor of Visual News. Follow his movements on Twitter:
