Ryan Mcginness' art is full of icons, signs and corporate logos, and yet the communication seems to have collapsed in a dense structure of visual languages. Ryan Mcginness has been called a new Warholian pop iconographer. He challenges the borders between popular illustration and high art. He adapts imagery from graffiti, tags, ads and other visual vocabularies. His motives are stylised and the arabesques are well organised in calligraphic flows and tattoo-like patterns. It is a language of public signage and contemporary iconography articulated trough colourful compositions and layered collages, where information is being transformed into geometric abstraction. His Chain Reactions series hangs in the Thompson LES Penthouse.
