Barneys New York Display is Totally Wicked! (11 photos)

Brooklyn artist Dennis McNett is the guy behind this sick new window installation at Barneys New York. Over-sized wolf, owl, and skull masks adorn mannequins inside the display. His imagery from nature, folklore, mythology, and storytelling mixed with graphic woodcut blocks, prints, masks, and paper mache sculptures sets a very unique stage for the retail store in this part of town.

Situated on Madison Avenue between 60th and 61st Streets, the display runs from June 23 through July 12. The window installation covers over 50 feet of windows on Madison and one small window on 61st. Professionally lit, it is best viewed at night.

McNett was born in 1972 and grew up in Virginia Beach. He moved to New York in 2001, and has been carving surly block prints for over 18 years.
