Noted authors and artists inspire and inform the paintings of David McGee.

Houston artist David McGee juxtaposes image and language to comment on social issues, famous personalities, literature, popular culture, and his own experiences as an African-American man. Arts InSight takes a look at McGee’s past and present work, and how he’s able to swing freely between painting figurative imagery and adopting a more abstract style.

McGee also produces a podcast called #9 with David McGee for the Texas visual art journal Glasstire. Listen here.
