  • by far my favorite posting on booooooom

  • This is way too awesome. They are beautiful paintings with wonderful looking letters! It’s almost perfect, and I love the cohesiveness.

  • Brian

    I got his monograph this December. I’ve only had a chance to skim through it, but the work and developement is amazing.

  • tini

    i guess the landscapes are found paintings painted on?

    • simon

      Don´t think they´re found paintings…he seems to have full control over the letterings within the landscape… and how light and shadow from each react together.

      the 7th one down glows around it…he owns every aspect of the painting.

      • Matt

        Tini is right. From a press release for one of his shows:

        Rather than a canvas, White paints on 1960s and 1970s thrift-store lithographic reproductions of 19th century Romantic landscape paintings, incorporating their kitsch iconography into the composition with both irony and national pride.

  • These. are. amazing.


  • Oh god! Terribly amazing!!

  • Alicks Renee

    Wow. All I gotta say.

  • sooooooooooo gooooood!!!

  • Holy ! those are amazing, his skill at perspective is excellent

  • rasaka

    damn clever! 😉

  • this is the coolest thing!

  • Wayne White is brilliantly creative.

  • Really awesome, and great idea

  • Mina



    If these are found landscapes, I would easily believe the artist painted them anyway because of how well he handles the lettering.

  • carmin

    yes yes mooore lsd

  • Eric

    This is a bit much like ronald kurniawan’s work wouldn’t you say??

  • I remember seeing these in my sculpture class last summer during a lecture. Pretty awesome stuff. You all should check out his installation piece from the Rice Gallery in Houston. http://www.ricegallery.org/new/exhibition/biglectricfan.html

  • kacey z

    yoooo tight!!!

  • fairly certain they have a couple of these on the wall at Fred 62 in los feliz!

  • His bio says: His most successful works have been the world paintings featuring over-sized, three-dimensional text painstakingly integrated into vintage landscape reproductions.

    Fantastic work!

  • kekeke

    reminds me of ruscha, anyone anyone?

  • ruru

    His work will be shown at Herron School of Art and Design in Indy from Jan 21 to Feb 24. Check it out!!! 🙂

  • wow, these are amazing.

  • Agastyan

    Very skilled work.. My problem isnt with the skill its with society. It seams that we can’t look at something beautiful without putting letters all over it.

  • Carlos Marco

    He’s made some of these for Lambchop records, such as “Nixon”.

  • Abzats

    words with different meaning – interesting

  • Morgan

    oh man. totally genius

  • Leonid
  • his word paintings are just like Ed Ruscha’s in the 60s!

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”


One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.
