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. He has also created grotesque, cartoonish sculptures of famous people’s heads, such as Lyndon B. Johnson, as well as puppets and music videos.
