We were pleasantly surprised to find that multimedia artist Wayne White is one of the contemporary artists to lend their artwork to the Fred Artist Series of jigsaw puzzles (and a great desk art) from retailer Genuine Fred.
Wayne White Puzzles and Desk Art
Genuine Fred is best known for their humorously designed, irreverent gifts for kids and adults. When puzzles gained popularity during the quarantine, they launched their Artist Series, a selection of jigsaw puzzles from independent artists. Among them are two of our contemporary favorites, Wayne White and Scott Listfield.
We’ve already shared with you the astronaut paintings of Scott Listfield, so today we’re focused on the pieces by Wayne White. Born in Chattanooga, Wayne White has worked professionally as a cartoonist, illustrator, painter, sculptor, set and puppet designer, and animator in New York and Los Angeles. His paintings of large colorful words over landscapes have become very popular in the past few years.
Suffice it to say, once we saw that his paintings, Fanfuckingtastic and Shitshow had been made into puzzles – and for only $20 and $15 respectively, we jumped on them. Finished, lacquered and framed, they would be the closest thing to affording his actual original artworks.
This 500 piece puzzle measures 22.5 x 16.5 inches (57cm x 42cm) and features an original artwork by Wayne White. A color insert of the art is included in each box. A 10″ x 13.5″ color insert of the art is included in each box.
This large, 1000 piece puzzle measures 32 x 16.5 inches (81cm x 42cm) and features an original artwork by Wayne White. A full-color insert of the art is included in each box.
The Fred Artist Series jigsaw puzzles are all made to the highest quality standards. Each 2mm thick ribbon-cut puzzle is made of 90% recycled material, and printed with soy-based inks with an anti-glare finish.
Each sale from the Fred Artists Series supports independent artists. The back of each puzzle box features the artists headshot and bio so you can dive deeper into the inspiration behind the art & learn more about their background.
In addition to the two puzzles by Wayne White for Genuine Fred, they are also offering The Daily Shitshow Dynamic Desk Art by Wayne White.
The stand-up frame comes with 15 interchangeable original artworks by Wayne White printed on heavy duty card stock. For only $13, you can’t find a better novelty gift for the Wayne White fan.
Amazon Prime also has the 2012 documentary on the artist, Beauty is Embarrassing, available to rent or buy here.
