McGlynn, Casey

Casey McGlynn grew up in rural Ontario, where he would sit in front of the television and draw on old grocery bags and scrap paper tirelessly, creating self-taught surrealist pop art. Later in life, McGlynn attended the Ontario College of Art and Design. Being added to the Bau-Xi Gallery’s stable at a very young age, McGlynn’s early work contains spontaneity, originality and raw energy found more often in Outsider Art.

McGlynn’s work is as much about revealing the truth and expressing emotions, as it is about documenting actual fact. ‘Since 1995, McGlynn has exhibited extensively in Canada, the United States and Europe.
