Published on the occasion of the first major survey of Barry McGee's work, this monumental volume records more than two decades of incredible fecundity, over the course of which McGee has pioneered a new iconography of sharp street vitality and graphic snap. McGee began as a graffiti artist on the streets of San Francisco, working under such tags as Ray Fong, Twist & Twisto, and his work since then has hugely expanded the terms of both street art & contemporary art. This volume revisits McGees most influential installations in art spaces, and considers the evolution of his aesthetic within institutional settings. Previously unseen photographs by Craig Costello document the artists work on the streets of san Francisco in the early 90s, highlighting the contributions of his friends and mentors.
