The ever-prolific painter and pop iconographer Ryan McGinness spins into neo-Warholian overdrive this month. As Culture Monster recently reported, McGinness will be blanketing the LA area with his creative output including three gallery shows (paintings, sculptures, works on paper), a conceptual piece involving corporate logos at Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects, new art installations at Standard Hotels downtown and West Hollywood locations, and a three-night performance / nude model draw-a-thon at the latter venue. Plus parties.

The festivities begin with the opening of Recent Paintings at Michael Kohn Gallery May 19. The show includes representative pieces from several recent bodies of work, in addition to a series of new paintings.  Expect plenty of color and graphic complexity, in service of a world view that may or may not be illuminating.
