Work / Art

Check out these stunning typographic artworks by Terrence Payne

Following on in the great American tradition of painting enormous slogans into beautiful pieces of art (think Ed Ruscha and Wayne White) is Minneapolis artist Terrence Payne. Terrence’s richly detailed oil pastel works incorporate typographic messages, buried within candy-stripe patterns and formed from lovingly rendered fabrics, making him a much needed addition to an art world that so often leaves the hard graft to studio hands.
