ABOUT THE ART
Here is a masterpiece !
This is a beautiful 100 + 400% Be@rbrick set, again produced with the technique of water printing (or transfer in aqueous environment), taken from a work of San Francisco artist Barry McGee.
Barry McGee is a major US contemporary artist from the west coast graffiti scene. He participated to many International exhibitions including the Xth Biennal of Lyon and Beautiful Loosers documentary along artists such as Kaws, Phil Frost, Ryan McGinley, Ed Tempelton, Mark Gonzales, Shepard Fairey and many more.
This Be@rbrick features a pattern so specific to the artist's work. That 400% and 100% Be@rbrick set comes also with an exclusive Apple iWatch strap with the same pattern.
American Barry McGee (b. 1966) is a street artist, painter and mixed-media artist. Growing up in a Californian skateboard and graffiti environment, McGee draws upon the bright and down sides of urban life. McGee uses several pseudonyms such as Lydia Fong, Twist and others, but his iconic figure, a male with saggy eyes and a bewildered facial expression is always recognizable as well as his geometric paintings in dazzling color combinations.
That McGee is rooted in street art also shows, when McGee upholds the nature and gestures of graffiti by painting directly on the walls at exhibitions and gallery shows. A more recent trademark of McGee’s is his clustering of small and big paintings in large collages - an inspiration picked up in Catholic churches in Brazil.
