Special Consensus, 1969
Wayne E. Campbell (American, born 1944)

Wayne E. Campbell is an American painter born in 1944. He is best known for his 1974 collaboration with Wayne R. Campbell. Upon discovering that another artist named Wayne Campbell existed, Campbell approached him for a collaboration. He wrote instructions for paintings that the two were meant to follow. The results were compiled side-by-side in a book that is now in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art collection.
