Ryan McGinness – Issue No. 0048
We are proud to present Ryan McGinness as our next cover artist and curator of Arkitip Issue No. 0048.
McGinness makes his second appearance in Arkitip, the first being way back in Issue No. 0005, published in May 2000. Art Director Sas was first impressed by the artist in 1999, meeting him shortly after his picking up his book, Flatnessisgod. McGinness’ art career has flourished exponentially since that time. In addition to being represented by Deitch Galleries and Pace Prints, he has produced over 27 solo shows in galleries worldwide, and recently created a major exhibition as part of Art Basel Miami in 2008.
The book entitled Aesthetic Comfort is published by Arkitip on the occasion of the Aesthetic Comfort exhibitions in the Fall of 2008. This artist’s book features details of McGinness’ paintings converted to coarse halftones and printed in 4 fluorescent inks: orange, yellow, pink, and green. It will accompany each issue edition, which is packaged in a custom designed box made exclusively for Arkitip by Incase.
McGinness has been accurately described as “A Warhol for the 21st Century” (Black Book) and “a leading pioneer of the new semiotics” (Vogue). Using iconic representations of logos and symbols, he weaves and spins them into something supremely elegant.
