Two Artists You Should Know

If you don't know about Rex Ray & Ryan McGinness you should. Jim bought Rex Rey Art + Design for me for our anniversary. Talk about inspiration. Although Rex Ray has done loads of album art it is his collage that speaks to me. His use of shape, color, and texture are amazing. While I was salivating over Rex Ray's book Ryan McGinness was mentioned as another artist with a similar style. I HAD to order installationview and it arrived today. I was not disappointed! This book is yummy. I love the overlapping and repeating shapes as well as the use of line. Ryan McGinness has several pieces pictured that have been done directly onto walls and the effect is amazing.
