Hector McLean is a young, emerging painter who uses a range of painting materials. His artwork experiments with colour and structures and the figures that occupy those structures.
The artist composes scenes that collide the banality of everyday life with cinematic and commercial components. His ambiguous narratives create thought provoking yet accessible images that look to draw the viewer in.
McLean lives and works in Berlin.
