Lot description
"The Tomato Eaters" exemplifies the visually arresting digital manipulation for which contemporary artist Wade Guyton is best known. This signed and numbered print is from the sold-out "Texte zur Kunst" Young edition.

Wade Guyton (b. 1972) is a contemporary American artist who came to prominence with his series of computer-based works on paper in which he covered the pages of vintage magazines and catalogues with black X's. A black-and-white palette and the letter “X” are recurring motifs in Guyton’s work, which encompasses abstract paintings, drawings, and installations that rely on the purposeful misuse of inkjet printers and software like Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Word. Guyton has collaborated frequently with the artist Kelley Walker (American, b. 1969) as part of the team Guyton\Walker. He has had solo shows and two-man shows (Guyton\Walker) at Greene Naftali Gallery, New York, NY and Cologne, Germany (2004, 2005,2009); Friedrich Petzel Gallery, New York, NY (2006, 2007, 2011, 2013); the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY (2010, 2012); the Baltimore Museum of Art, MD (2010); and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany (2010). He lives and works in New York, NY.
