Presented by the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York City, Mark Ryden’s latest exhibition “The Art of Whipped Cream” featured original sketches, drawings and paintings he created for the American Ballet Theater’s production “Whipped Cream” by Alexei Ratmansky. As a creative visionary behind the production, Ryden dreamt up it’s sets, backdrops, props and costumes in his whimsy, magical style. The ballet was held at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House and coincided with the exhibition. We were lucky enough to attend the ballet and see the final days of the exhibit. Below are some shots from both.
