Ryan McGinness

I first discovered American artist Ryan McGinness a few years ago when his book Flatnessisgod was featured in Surface magazine. Amazing artist and designer! His work is a must see. Both the indoor and outdoor installation pieces he's done are insane.

McGinness has created a semantics of symbolic icons that bluntly explicates the common chaos in the vernacular that's thrown at us in advertising, signage, and elsewhere every day.• Village Voice

By subverting corporate iconography, former skater punk Ryan McGinness has built a reputation as a Warhol for the 21st century. • Black Book
