Profile for Aaron McKinney

Aaron's artwork combines a childlike fixation on funny creatures and odd hybrids with a peculiar, nightmarish monumentalism. Bold colors and watercolored, colorblock backgrounds frame the pieces, while fairytale-ish spotlights illuminate key players. But the key is the absolute believability of his completely fantastical, fabricated reality. Whatever the assignment, his work is always highly original and strikingly recognizable. His drawings force a sweeping pocket of strangely comforting completion, an aesthetic brace that lets us refocus our attention, however temporarily.

Influences:
Ralph Steadman, Leonard Baskin, Ben Shahn & Francis Bacon to name a few.
