Pieces from the artist Wayne White’s book Maybe Now I’ll Get The Respect I So Richly Deserve, edited by Todd Oldham, published by Ammo Books. He takes cheaply mass produced lithogaphs which he finds in secondhand thrift stores and painstakingly writes phrases or words on them in a glossy 3-D style; many compare him to Ed Ruscha. [Oh and he won 2 Emmys as a set designer/puppeteer on Pee Wee’s Playhouse before he started this whole painting thing…And won a Billboard award for the art direction of Peter Gabriel’s “Big Time” in 1986…And in 1996 he designed all the sets for the amazing Smashing Pumpkins video “Tonight, Tonight.” And… I wanna know him.]
