April 28 - May 10 Case Mackeen: "POP Transfer"


This collection of paintings is thematically based in and around the transit system. These public spaces where riders congregate and intersect have always interested me; initially painting on them and now making paintings of them. Subway cars and street cars are fascinating subjects, visually and symbolically, connecting The 6 boroughs like a microcosm of a larger socio-economic system. The POP(proof of payment) transfer is that connection.
Ryan MacKeen is a painter and graffiti artist. He is also known by the moniker CASE.
MacKeen rose out of the street art movement and graffiti boom in Toronto during the early nineties. His current work draws heavily from his graffiti writing experience with comparisons to impressionism and a style that's been called Post-Graffiti Impressionism. Each piece is created using spray paint and traditional graffiti techniques.
CASE was highly influential on the urban art scene that followed in his wake. He has exhibited at The Royal Ontario Museum and The Art Gallery of Ontario as well as numerous galleries in NY, LA,  and Europe.
