Typo landscapes by Wayne White

Wayne White is an American artist, art director, illustrator, puppeteer, and much, much more. A former set and character designer for the television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse, cartoonist and painter Wayne White produces ironic, often subversive imagery. White is best known for his word paintings composed of oversized, three-dimensional text painted onto cheap landscape paintings he finds at thrift stores and markets, a practice that has drawn comparisons to Ed Ruscha.

Slogans and phrases such as “Fanfuckintastic” populate White’s images. 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.
