Cody Bayne comes to the Ride Gallery as a bridge connecting Fine Art practices with street chutzpah.  A pioneer in Neo-Urban Expressionism, Bayne offers a visual experience that decontextualizes elements commonly seen in street and graffiti art and juxtaposes them within the frame of a mixed media painting.  He appropriates items from his environment to create his pieces, either by using them as reference or by literally incorporating them into the piece. 

A Los Angeles based artist, Bayne consciously and subconsciously represents the impact of the everyday life in his city. Commoditization culture, decline, decay and renewal as well as consumption are only a few of the themes that flourish in his work.  The Ride Gallery is very proud to carry and promote the work of this amazing artist.
