W+K Shanghai Creative Director Ryan Gerber Returns to US, Goes Out in Style

Oil + Ink 1W+K Shanghai creative director Ryan Gerber is leaving that city for someplace where the air is cleaner than second-hand smoke.

Gerber will be returning to the US and, as a last hurrah, he collaborated on an art show with current and former W+K employees called Oil+Ink. The show runs until the 20th, at which time all of the art, including two very bad ass motorcycles, will belong to W+K. Ryan has worked with clients such as Chrysler, Jeep, Converse, Fiat, Beats, Pepsi, Levi’s, Amp Energy, Nike, and Motorola. He spent over 3 years with R/GA before jumping to W+K Shanghai in 2010. You might remember this trippy recruitment video he worked on for the agecny. Check out more photos of the sweet bikes below.Oil+ Ink 2Oil + Ink 3
