Wayne White

i try not to re-post stories from mega-rad blogs like It’s Nice That because i figure everyone else reads them too (and if you don’t, you should) – but this was too good not to share and share again.

Wayne White’s word paintings are exactly my cup of tea – milk + sugar with a dash of wit and satire, please.

Wayne has had great success as a fine artist and has created paintings and public works that have been shown all over the world. His most successful works have been the word paintings featuring oversized, three-dimensional text painstakingly integrated into vintage landscape reproductions. The message of the paintings is often thought-provoking and almost always humorous, with Wayne pointing a finger at vanity, ego, and his memories of the South.

    I’ve admired this artist’s work for many years now. He’ so unique that apparently no one is trying to knock him off! Thanks, Miss Moss, for posting these pictures.

    If you live in the LA area you can see some of his paintings (Most likely prints) at Fred 62 in Los Feliz. I had been staring at them the last time i was there and was trying to figure out who had done them or where they had got them. This article was such a happy coincidence!

    Are you familiar with the Oxford American Magazine? It’s been called The New Yorker of the South. Check out this video in the SoLost series, Wayne White Goes Thrifting:

    And there’s this interview, too:
