Geoff Mcfetridge

Geoff McFetridge is a Canadian artist based in Los Angeles, California. He exhibits his work in Los Angeles, Berlin, Paris, London, the Netherlands and Japan. Instinctively ignoring creative boundaries McFetridge is an all round visual auteur. From poetry to animation, from graphics to 3D work, from textile and wallpaper to paintings, McFetridge has complete control over these widely divergent disciplines. His work graces magazines, posters, t-shirts, textiles, motion graphics, and advertising.

Understatement is central to the impact of his work, inviting participation. It gets through the filters by offering the viewer an opportunity to play with a puzzle for a moment, a puzzle that doesn't have one simple answer. His work is full of hands and teeth, objects and animals, hands and heads.
