The following biography originally appeared on Secession.

Christopher Wool was born in Chicago in 1955. He now lives and works in New York.

Wool is best known for his paintings of large, black, stenciled letters on white canvases. However, Wool possesses a wide range of style – using a combined array of painterly techniques, including spray paint, silkscreen, and hand painting. Wool provides tension between painting and erasing, gesture and removal, depth and flatness.

Christopher Wool's work has been shown extensively around the world including venues like the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam.
