The Ryan McGinness extravaganza (teased) set to take Los Angeles by storm this month, which will see the artist bring his work in various forms to seven different venues, will be properly kicked off at the Michael Kohn Gallery. Opening tomorrow night, May 19th, the exhibition will mark the first solo effort by the New York contemporary heavy weight with the blue chip LA institution, presenting a brand new body of paintings to be complimented by a selection of classic works from a range of different chapters in the McGinness narrative. Without properly showing in the LA area for a number of years, Ryan has stated the time was finally right to bring his work back to Southern California, and he’s doing so in a big way. This exhibition, arguably more so than any of the other events and exhibitions, will serve as the must see of the bunch and the perfect way to start the festivities, highlighting the type of color rich, complex compositions that are most synonymous with McGinness’ signature brand of one-off screenprinting.

Check out a nice taste of what’s in store after the jump.
