McGinness makes his second appearance in Arkitip, the first being way back in Issue No. 0005, published in May 2000. Art Director Sas was first impressed by the artist in 1999, meeting him shortly after his picking up his book, Flatnessisgod. McGinness' art career has flourished exponentially since that time. In addition to being represented by Deitch Galleries and Pace Prints, he has produced over 27 solo shows in galleries worldwide, and recently created a major exhibition as part of Art Basel Miami in 2008.

The book entitled Aesthetic Comfort is published by Arkitip on the occasion of the Aesthetic Comfort exhibitions in the Fall of 2008. This artist's book features details of McGinness' paintings converted to coarse halftones and printed in 4 fluorescent inks: orange, yellow, pink, and green. It will accompany each issue edition, which is packaged in a custom designed box made exclusively for Arkitip by Incase.

McGinness has been accurately described as "A Warhol for the 21st Century" (Black Book) and "a leading pioneer of the new semiotics" (Vogue). Using iconic representations of logos and symbols, he weaves and spins them into something supremely elegant.

Additional Information

About Arkitip
Arkitip's beginnings were humble. While the magazine began with a 50 copy, hand stapled run in 1999, those first copies look more sophisticated than most other "zines" you might have considered in the same category. The covers were silk-screened on corrugated cardboard and the docutek used to replicate the black & white art in the magazine rivaled the performance of most offset printers. It had a great homemade feel that was bona fide quality. Excellence in production is still of primary importance to Arkitip today. Artists contributing to the magazine respect this, as they know their art will not be compromised in any way. Today, Arkitip is a hand numbered 4/color art book. The fact that the magazine publishes site specific work at a lower price point than what hangs on gallery walls makes it available to art collectors of all economic levels. Each issue is like an original piece of art in and of itself. The magazine's founding principles remain as they were when we began:

  • Support the arts
  • Promote freedom of expression
  • Make art affordable and accessible

Arkitip Magazine serves these principles every day by its very existence. What began as a creative project between friends has become a full fledged business and a worldwide source for groundbreaking art and design today.
