I saw this compelling installation by Barry McGee (aka Twist) at SFMOMA while I was in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. Born and raised in SF, McGee has been a significant figure in bringing street art into mainstream galleries. His mixture of graffiti, colourful geometric graphics, and photography are displayed together in a distinctive style he adopted following a trip to Brazil, where he was inspired by a similar arrangements of artworks in churches.
