Street artists are well known to be the best all over the world. In most cases, they remain anonymous since they might be involved in illegal artwork or graffiti. Ryan Wilson, popularly known as ThankYoux, is a special case of a street artist who has made a name out of his street artworks. In 2009, Ryan was started paying homage to a name that inspired him to become an artist. He flooded the streets of Los Angeles with iconic Andy Warhol spray paint stencils and signed it with a “Thank You X” underneath. The “Thank You” was a gesture of gratitude to the aesthetic of rebellious integrity from Andy Warhol. At the same time, X was a mark of anonymity. ThankYouX later becomes Ryan’s identity. His paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in Miami, Los Angeles, New York, London, and Hong Kong. His geometric mixed media cube paintings became popular and saw him feature as the official artist in New York’s 2016 Global Citizen Music Festival. He has also worked with
- MTV Virtual Reality art

His works have been collected by Paul McCartney, Wiz Khalifa, Elon Musk, Evan Spiegel (Snapchat CEO), Miley Cyrus, Lil Jon, Drew Taggert (The Chainsmokers member), among others.
