Coffee-Table Book: Ryan McGinness, Works

As a young skate punk in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Ryan McGinness couldn't afford the logo'd gear his friends wore, so he started stenciling shirts with his own designs. Now those quasi-corporate Day-Glo symbols have turned him into a brand name, at least in the art world. Though McGinness' recent paintings have a fractallike complexity, his new retrospective, Works (Rizzoli, $55), is as viewer-friendly as the early art that made him famous. This unpretentious guide includes not only images of McGinness' creations but also an essay by Greg Lindquist, an interview with David Byrne, and candid annotations by the artist himself.
