Mati Klarwein, although considered a psychedelic artist by some, when asked in an interview “How do you feel about being classified as a psychedelic painter?” his response was:

I think it’s subjective.  Anybody can classify me as they wish.  In the fifties I was classified as an illustrator, even though my work consisted of paintings.  And in the sixties my work was classified as psychedelic.  So I took psychedelics to find out what it was all about.  I found out I couldn’t paint on them.  I’ll tell you about a funny episode.  Jean Houston and Robert Masters put together a book called Psychedelic Art in the sixties, and they came to me.  They did an interview with me, like we’re doing now, to include me in their book.  And they asked me, “What kind of psychedelics do you take when you’re painting?”  And I said, “I don’t take anything when I’m painting.  When I take psychedelics I get very horny, and I start going out to nightclubs and cruising.”

So they said, “Well, we can’t put you in the book.”  I freaked out, because I wasn’t in any book yet (laughter), and I said, “But I get my ideas when I’m high.”  And they said, “Alright, we’ll put you in the book.”  Next they asked me for the names of other psychedelic painters, and I gave them a whole list, including Fuchs.  I called them all up right away, and I told them, “Tell them that you’re taking psychedelics!”  And they all got in the book.

Fusing together found and invented imagery, tags and assorted objects Barry McGee draws on a range of influences including the Mexican muralists, tramp art, the graffiti artists of the 70’s and 80’s and the San Francisco Beat poets to create a unique visual language. The work has the strong immediately recognizable visual signature of the best graffiti art, but is also enormously poetic and evocative. It communicates the artist’s strong empathy with people who have been left behind by contemporary society. Also known by his street name, twist, Barry McGee has a large following in the street art community. He has been working on the streets of San Francisco, his native city, since the mid 1980’s where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes and other surfaces despite the continuous campaign of public authorities to paint them out. McGee has long resisted showing his works in museums and commercial galleries but he has recently become more active ion the conventional art world context.

“By subverting corporate iconography, former skater punk Ryan McGinness has built a reputation as a Warhol for the 21st century.”—Black Book

“McGinness has knocked the stuffing out of the spare, modernist white-cube concept of a gallery and filled it with his own brand of art: ornate, jazzy pop visions that spring as much from graffiti and corporate logos as they do from art history.”—Boston Globe

Aesthetic Comfort, 2008

“Color and form explode from the corners of Ryan McGinness’ slick, graphic mindscapes. His unique and accessible visual language is generated by his imagination and day-to-day environment. Layering images and symbols, McGinness’ cacophonous microcosms express his reality as much as our own.”—Zink
