A Virginia native, McNett has been carving surly block prints for 18 years. His graphic aesthetic and love for narrative work has been translated in many ways. His work ranges from Viking ship performances/parades in Philly, resurrecting Nordic giants on West Broadway in Manhattan, dragon slayings in Oklahoma, masks, installations and sculptures to unique hand-carved wood cut pieces, traditional relief prints, and graphics. Participating in both the fine art and design worlds, McNett has been fortunate enough to create series for Anti-hero skateboards, design shoes for Vans, have his work fill the windows of Barneys, NY, and participate in the Deitch ArtParade.
