About

ThankYouX first became well known on the streets of Los Angeles in 2009 for his large iconic Andy Warhol spray paint stencils. Signing "Thank You X"  underneath in a gesture of anonymous gratitude for Warhol's aesthetic of rebellious integrity. The name accidentally became the artist's identity. Inspired by the pop tropes and bright colors of that NYC art scene, ThankYouX has exhibited paintings and sculptures in London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Hong Kong.  Now using his Street style in a more abstract way, he has been getting new attention for his geometric mixed media cube paintings. He was the official artist of the 2016 Global Citizen music festival in New York. This fall he teamed up with MTV for a traveling Virtual Reality art show based on the election. The show went to each of the debates as well as The White House. During Art Basel Miami 2016 ThankYouX created a special installation for Soho House using a Samsung 360 camera inside of an interactive art booth. ThankYouX just held a solo exhibition in New York City and is currently working on an exhibition in Hong Kong early next year as well as Berlin next Summer.
