Barry McGee (b. 1966) is a San Francisco-based artist who originally came on the scene as a street artist in the early 1990s.

Known by many different aliases, including Ray Fong, Lydia Fong, Bernon Vernon, Twist, and others, McGee's work was included in the 2001 Venice Biennale, which paved the way for his blue chip status in the art world today.

McGee's boldly graphic work deals with the overwhelming nature of advertising, and the plight of individuals existing the urban landscape.  His current exhibition at Cheim & Read features notorious geometric patchwork pieces in addition to pottery and a ballooned wall piece, which combines his surface design with sculpture.

Barry McGee is on view at Cheim & Read in Chelsea through October 26th.
