Beautiful Rebels

I know I talk about videos or articles from NOWNESS.com a lot but I just can’t help it, it’s one of my favorite websites and I love everything they do. Today’s NOWNESS posting is no exception as it features Ryan McGinley, a photographer/artists whose work I’ve followed since high school. The first time I was introduced to McGinley’s work was at the Beautiful Losers: Contemporary Art and Street Culture exhibit at the OCMA (Orange County Museum of Art) back in 2005. An amazingly curated exhibit, Beautiful Losers featured works in a variety of media- painting, photography, film, sculpture pieces- by American artists such as Geoff McFetridge, Ryan McGinness, Spike Jonze, Ed Templeton, Mike Mills, and, of course, Ryan McGinley. McGinley stayed true to his distinct intimate and fantastical style in his latest project, Beautiful Rebels, and has created a lovely short to accompany the sustainable fashion brand Edun’s Spring 2012 campaign.
