McAttee's work is in many ways is a reflection of his background as a graffiti artist and fine art painter. During his time at Art School, McAttee became increasingly interested in Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art.
During this period he was learning about Art history, working on canvas, as well as painting on the streets. This experience has shaped his work to the present day. The work is a hybrid style born of these combining factors, offering the viewer a vision into a world that is out of the ordinary, with "a sense of escape into an inventive cosmic nebulous of upbeat excitement, like a worm hole into another world".
