About this Art
This RUN comes ready to hang with the attached back mounting.
We are excited to welcome back mixed media artist Ryan McCann as he gives 1xRUN an exclusive sneak peak at his upcoming show which opens April 13th at the Black Square Gallery in Miami with his latest fire and smoke multiples.
"The concept for the show stemmed from my love of rap and hip-hop in the 90‘s and my fascination with Communism. The excess portrayed by hip-hop artists meshed with the scarcity and ideological foundations of Communism fueled the imagery for the show. For this release I wanted to create simple works of influential communist figures that are to be purchased in our free economy. Maybe it is the irony. Consumerism and Communism at play with each other that makes me happy. I wanted to see the literal translation of this concept so we had Stalin indulge in Western culture and turned his escapades into a music video. There will be a variety of work including new blowtorch pieces, some sculptural elements and a new technique I developed that makes the wood glow." - Ryan McCann
