Through paintings, sculptures, and installations, Ryan McGinness is a contemporary artist exploring a post-pop art world. His influences include graphic design, skate culture, and corporate branding, and often his works include techniques from each sphere — silkscreening, hard edges, icons and symbols, and vibrant color. The artist explores iconography through a satirical, subversive prism, stating, “nothing inherently has meaning. Meaning is projected and reflected which gives the illusion that things ‘have’ meaning. In that sense, meaning is like color.”
McGinness’ work can be found in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, and the Cincinnati Art Museum, among others. Born in Virginia, he now lives and works in New York, NY.
