New School Blacklight: Ryan McGinness

Ryan McGinness is a NYC artist who makes a lot of very different art with very similar themes, all of which looks really cool!  He has created a huge collection of graphic drawings that use the visual language of signs, corporate logos, and iconography, to create paintings, sculptures, and environments.  Ryan has made a lot of paintings that feature bright, neon colors, and he recently made some really incredible blacklight paintings that he calls “black holes.”

The large round canvases are deceptive. On first glance they look like fairly simple images, but stand in front of them for any length of time, and you are immediately drawn in to a trance by the delicate, hypnotic shapes. Black holes, indeed!

Ryan is about to have a three big shows in los angeles, so be on the lookout for some of his amazing events!
