  • 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.

  • YEAHHH!

  • Oh god! Terribly amazing!!

  • Alicks Renee

    Wow. All I gotta say.

  • sooooooooooo gooooood!!!

  • rasaka

    damn clever! ;)

  • this is the coolest thing!

  • Wayne White is brilliantly creative.

  • Really awesome, and great idea

  • Mina

    oooooooooooh<3

  • SHAUN

    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!

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
