These psychedelic art pieces are by Ryan McGinness, and they're currently showing at Deitch Projects in New York City. The vibrant paintings and sculptures are ensconced in an environment especially created for the exhibition. As you can see from the first image, this environment includes blacklights aplenty. Lovely!

'Ryan McGinness Works' will run at Deitch Projects on Wooster Street through mid-April.

Implications - The poor economy and resurgence of retro art collided to allow modern psychedelic art to flourish. These surreal pieces allow viewers to escape from the doldrums of real life in the recession; in viewers who are old enough to remember the 60s and 70s, the vibrant hues and trippy patterns also inspire nostalgia.
