Using the principles of graphic design, painter and silk screen printer Ryan McGinness creates elaborate two dimensional works and room-filled installations that are dense with iconography, language and product symbolism. Corporate logos, graffiti and elements of art history serve as inspiration for the artist’s prints, vinyl decals, wall murals and commercial objects. McGinness has recently produced several publications featuring his work including No Sin/No Future, Ryan McGinness Works and Aesthetic Comfort. Next year, the artist will present the exhibition Studio Franchise at La Casa Encendida in Madrid and Art History is Not Linear, on view at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
