The Bay Area is the place to be in late August for Barry McGee’s 2012 exhibit. If you haven’t heard of Barry McGee and you are interested in urban art you definitely want to look him up. I’m excited to announce that the California’s Berkley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive have been awarded a $100,000 grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation to hold an exhibit for Barry McGee showing over two decades worth of his work.

Barry McGee, often known as “Twist,” the name he used in his graffiti art, was born in 1966 and raised is San Francisco. Most of his creditability started in the 80’s on the streets tagging anything he could find to display his talents. He uses comics, sign paintings, and folk art inspired by Margaret Kilgallen, to express himself and the style which he loves most. It’s a rarity that you see Barry McGee’s work displayed in a gallery, but starting August 23rd through December 9th you can catch it all in Berkeley.
