BARRY MCGEE

I love me some Twist.  I feel like he’s a hero of my graffiti generation and a fine art hero as well.  I saw the Muni tunnel animations in person.  I saw the aerosol kids at psycho city and his famous red construction walls as well.  I’ve seen his monster faux stickers in bus stop ad kiosks and I have a few of his old stickers that I stole off signs in my early black books.  He’s been an influence on my graffiti view point as he’s always transcended the politics of graffiti’s role and traditional confines.  He’s a large part of why the San Francisco graffiti scene is so interesting and eclectic.  Creative Lives Interviewed him as part of their on going profile series.  It’s nice to get a glimpse into his thinking and his process.
