Wooden structures, vans, graffiti, tagged sculptures and colours that overspill motifs combining the decorative and the hard-edged: Barry McGee’s oeuvre is naturally, explosively in your face. McGee is one of the current art figures who have best pulled off the marriage of graffiti and urban art with a thoroughgoing mastery of his materials and the technical skill of an engineer. Frankly receptive to street culture, his work takes place in a buffer zone between the intellectual and the "popular" – a terrain of possibilities that scorns the directives and injunctions governing life in big cities.
