Bernie McCabe is a contemporary maze artist who lives and works in Richmond, VA. “Maze Artist” is McCabe’s preferred title as everything he makes is a fully solvable, start-to-finish maze. His mazes can be found on canvas, wood, T-shirts, skateboards, shoes, buildings, parking lots, and in museums.
Bernie is drawn to mazes for their complexity and for their ability to visually mirror the feeling of being lost with so many directions to choose from. He presents life as a maze that needs to be navigated as the main theme in his work, whether that be navigating an existential crisis, navigating pop culture, or navigating the nuances of love.
Bernie’s hope is that his playful and interactive artwork serves as encouragement for people to solve their own maze and get where they want to be, regardless of how many dead ends they run into along the way.
