CASEY MCGLYNN

Like many artists, Casey McGlynn first began exploring his creativity as a child, drawing for hours, already beginning to develop what would become his robust, recognizable visual language. McGlynn’s paintings, often including collaged elements, are honest, vulnerable, and dynamic, often depicting himself or those close to him through representative symbols like whales, birds, elephants, horses, and a large man in red. The artist balances his angst with humor, shares stories from his life, and often includes written words that read like diary entries on his canvases. Inspired by the early punk rock scene in Toronto, ON,  and a musician himself, it’s easy to see the connection McGlynn feels to punk’s rejection of the mainstream. But McGlynn’s rebellion is approachable, posed as a question he continues to explore in his sensitive work.

Casey McGlynn holds a Diploma from Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, ON. He has shown his work across North America, most recently with his 2019 solo exhibition at Foster/White Gallery, and at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Boulder, CO, by invitation at the Alabama State Council of the Arts, Montgomery, AL, at the Outsider Art Fair, New York, NY, and as a featured artist at the SOFA Exhibition in Chicaco, IL. He has been the recipient of multiple awards, has been a guest lecturer at several universities including at Brock University, St. Catherines, ON. His work is part of collections across North America.
