Walrus TV: Ryan McGinness

"There is a constant dialogue between me and the surfaces."
Ryan McGinness is interested in creating a new vocabulary for everyday symbols and icons through context and composition. Using layering, repetition, and juxtaposition, his complex pieces construct worlds within worlds. With his massively intricate silk-screened paintings, sculptures, and installations, hes able to blur the division between design, pop culture, and fine art. Ryan McGinnesss artwork has appeared in numerous books, magazines, and exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. Watch the interview from The Run Up, available for the first time to the public for free, on Walrus TV.
