Barry McGee

Dense displays of ex-votos (offerings) at a Catholic church in São Cristóvão, seen during a travel to Brazil for an eight-month residency in 1993, have inspired the graffiti artist Barry McGee. Starting with an exhibition the following year, he began similarly filling gallery walls with sizzling clusters of framed drawings or empty booze bottles (some of which it’s said he bought from homeless folks) painted with hangdog cartoon faces.
