6 Artists to Watch This October: CHRISTOPHER WOOL

Few contemporary artists have developed a visual vocabulary as immediately recognizable as the Chicago-born artist Christopher Wool's—and what's remarkable is that he was able to achieve this distinction across a number of different series, from his influential text paintings to his elegantly minimal canvases marked by fences and other repetitive forms to his dynamic gestural abstractions that borrow from graffiti culture. His major retrospective at the Guggenheim this month will put this achievement in stark relief, filling the museum's entire rotunda with three decades of work for the artist's most comprehensive exhibition yet.
