Jason McLean is a Brooklyn-based Canadian artist most widely known for his mixed-media drawings and paintings. These works exhibit a tangled web of thoughts and ideas that take the viewer from place to place through the use of lines and bright, punchy colors. He mixes mediums and pieces of his life often resulting in autobiographical work. As his life and quirky interests heavily influence his art, there are traces of obsessive object collecting, mind-mapping from one idea to the next, and a slew of collaborative improvisational projects throughout.
He is represented by Van Der Plas Gallery (NYC), Michael Gibson Gallery (London, ON), and Mónica Reyes Gallery (Vancouver).
