Biography   Christopher Wool


Contemporary artist, Christopher Wool was born in 1955. He studied at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, New York Studio School and New York University. Wool is known for his paintings of large, black, stenciled letters on a white canvas resembling a sign or billboard. Although his most recognizable works are those with the black lettering, Wool started out by painting in drips and splatters like Pollock. He ventured through phases of flower and leaf motifs before arriving at his homemade versions of the lettered paintings.

His materials are basic and for the most part are readily available; generic stencils, black alkyd, rubber roller, etc. The printed words on his canvases are taken from movies, books and advertisemen   ...  Displaying 750 of 1346 characters.
