Barely thirty years old, Ryan McGinness has already achieved a lifetime's worth of personal and critical success. A graphic designer known for his signature blend of psychedelic abstract with product-oriented representation, McGinness uses a hypnotic personal iconography of symbols and images, which are recontextualized in media as diverse as soccer balls and agnes b. dress shirts.
This volume features a wide range of McGinness's art and design, including works on paper, drawings, installations, and sketchbook selections. With boundless creativity and graphic agility, McGinness has succeeded in bridging a significant gap in contemporary design: His work is original; yet it is equally at home on gallery walls as it is on the mass-produced. Ryan McGinness shows how, by extending the limitations of graphic design, he has created an aesthetic that is palpably relevant, instantly recognizable, and unquestionably his own.
