Content

Wayne is a unique wordsmith, brilliantly juxtaposing irreverent and humorous phrases over existing thrift store paintings that together create a completely original and fictional landscape. 
Influenced by both his upbringing in rural Tennessee and a very sophisticated knowledge of art history, Wayne White’s sensibility is completely singular and distinctive.
Wayne White’s warped and perspectival words integrate into seemingly benign pastoral landscapes, creating a completely surreal experience.
Wayne’s expert painting chops and detailed attention to lighting and reflection place the “new” text directly in its “original” setting.
Text paintings such as “Donald Judd was a Son of a Bitch Wrecked His Train in a Whorehouse Ditch,” “Poon,” and “Maybe Now I’ll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve,” are a welcome departure from the more-often-than-not self-aggrandizing art world.In fact, this popularly priced, sumptuous monograph is FANFUCKINTASTIC!

  •     Amazing book, liked everything about this and would like more!
  •     Wayne White's work is amazing in its ability to make you think while making you laugh, and sometimes making you cringe in discomfort of the shared feeling. He's a master of sublime wit. I wish I could line every all of my home with his work and walk the world through to appreciate his brilliance. Alas, the book will have to suffice.
  •     surpassed all expectations. A+made an amazing and inspiring gift. Mr White's story and work are moving. He's a bad ass too so that makes the ride that much better
  •     Great book about a wonderful living legend Wayne White. The guy is approachable, kind, funny, articulate and dedicated to making art that anyone can appreciate. It's really funny when art snobs try to pigeonhole Wayne...the critics almost always come around after they take their nose out of the air and look at the body of his work. An American Treasure.

  •     Enjoy the book. Excellent customer service! The book arrived in near perfect condition! Purchased as gift, she loved it so much!
  •     This book is a lot smaller that the original, making the text and images fairly small to look at. It's about 7" x 9". The original is somewhat around 15" x 18. Great content though.
