Wade Guyton is a post-conceptual American artist best known for his monochrome digital paintings made with an Epson inkjet printer. In his early work, Guyton used a desktop printer to lay black X-shapes, which would become his signature mark, over pages taken from interior design catalogues. His work recycles images using inkjet printing, photo silk-screening, and stenciling to imitate abstract paintings.
This large-scale print on linen, X Poster features a new image of the artist's famous 'X' paintings. It is produced to the scale of Guyton's original inkjet on canvas. Note it is signed and numbered in black ink on a label affixed to the original cardboard sleeve which is 24x36".

About Wade Guyton
Wade Guyton is best known for works on paper and canvas that exploit the painterly but erratic qualities of Inkjet printers. Employing large-format printers on pre-primed linen intended for oil painting, Guyton generates marks—typically Xs, stripes, and flames—that are irregularly absorbed to create random variations and patterns; seams and divisions in the composition result from folding and repeatedly feeding linen into the machine. In a recent series of black monochromes, paintings were overprinted with a Photoshop-drawn black rectangle.
