Ingleby Gallery > Artists > Adam McEwen

British-born artist Adam McEwen (b.1965) lives and works in New York. McEwen’s work is concerned with pop and consumer culture. McEwen approaches this landscape with a directness that is disarming and yet full of dark, dead-pan humour. In the past, McEwen’s work has appropriated the familiar formats of newspaper articles and mobile phone display screens, shop signage and credit cards. He has even applied chewing gum found on the street to his paintings on canvas.

McEwen’s most recognizable work to date is a series of blown-up obituaries written for living and breathing celebrities including Bill Clinton, Rod Stewart, Jeff Koons and Kate Moss.

McEwen has exhibited internationally and curated projects in the UK and US.
