Design guru and art collector Todd Oldham shines the spotlight on the clever and warped world of artist Wayne White. From Wayne's early days as a production designer and puppet maker for the iconic TV show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" to his unmistakable and exquisitely rendered text paintings, this monograph is a comprehensive view of Wayne White's oeuvre.
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.

Artist Wayne White grew up in Tennessee and his nostalgia for his youth and Southern heritage is addressed in the rustic landscapes that he fills with monumental sized text.Review:
"Residing now in Los Angeles, the Chattanooga-born painter has amassed a wild body of work, from set and puppet designs for 'The Pee-Wee Herman Show' to production design for Peter Gabriel's 'Big Time' video, to the mesmerizing phrase-in-landscapes, and to more abstract works. Nearly all of it has been packed into this heavy, satisfying, exhausting book, which, by all accounts, is being very well received (by both art and book lovers)." —Oxford American
