Melbourne based designer Ryan L Foote’s artistic practice is multidisciplinary in its scope, ranging from art, ceramics, food and drink design, to fashion set design and large scale events. He is best known for creating unique event based artworks that involve food, fashion, art and design based installations that envelop and entice all the of senses.

Foote studied at the Victorian College of the Arts, completing his Bachelor of Fine Art, Majoring in Sculpture and Spatial Practices in 2005 and then Honours in 2006, and has gone on to hold a number of exhibitions around Australia and overseas, creating large installations in institutions including, National Gallery of Victoria, Federation Square Melbourne, Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces, Melbourne's GPO Building and Flinders Lane Gallery just to name a few.

With Foote’s increasingly interest in installation art events, this path led to the inclusion of a culinary element to his art, working with multiple catering firms to develop and produce his own culinary creations. In late 2016 after many enquires for his porcelain plates, Ryan Foote established R L Foote Design Studio.
