Ask any artist who has ever painted on the street, whether graffiti or anything street art related, and Barry McGee’s name will come up. He is perhaps the most influential artist to ever come from the graffiti world, not just because he was able to transform the way people looked at what graffiti art could be, but his transistion into gallery and museum worlds developed an entirely fresh and original approach of how to bring the street into a white cube space. In some respects, the way Robert Williams changed the way we looked at figurative painting, McGee has done with graffiti.
