twist.

Barry McGee

Fus­ing together found and invented imagery, tags and assorted objects Barry McGee draws on a range of influ­ences includ­ing the Mex­i­can mural­ists, tramp art, the graf­fiti artists of the 70’s and 80’s and the San Fran­cisco Beat poets to cre­ate a unique visual lan­guage. The work has the strong imme­di­ately rec­og­niz­able visual sig­na­ture of the best graf­fiti art, but is also enor­mously poetic and evoca­tive. It com­mu­ni­cates the artist’s strong empa­thy with peo­ple who have been left behind by con­tem­po­rary soci­ety. Also known by his street name, twist, Barry McGee has a large fol­low­ing in the street art community.
