One of the most influential artists to come out of the graffiti and street art scenes, Barry McGee, was recently asked to reinstall a work of his at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for their 75th Anniversary retrospective.
Guess they really like this pimple-shaped protrusion of framed sketches, drawings, tags, photos, and geometric patterns
– it’s the 4th installation of the piece at SFMOMA since 1996.
In the video, McGee talks about his first creative impulses and practices, “I drew a lot as a kid, but I didn’t know I was going to be an artist.”
