Ancient Romans considered an X to be a sacred symbol, meaning “faith and fidelity”. During the middle ages, documents were sealed with an ‘X’ embossed with wax. Then it was customary to kiss it afterward.
That’s where the phrase “sealed with a kiss” comes from. And that’s why the letter X represents a kiss to this day.
‘O’ was later added to symbolize a hug. No one knows where or when. Scholars even hypothesized the game tic-tac-toe brought them together and it just stuc. But either way, the ‘X’ and ‘O’ are now deeply embedded in our culture — and in our minds:
Critics of the shorthand deride their usage as “girlish.” Defenders point out “x” and “o” are useful tools for women to soften direct requests in work emails. In the same way men traditionally use humor.
But when you add in the tone of sprayed stencil in these two pieces, it might just tell you a different story: Since no interpretation of abstract art is wrong, you’re free to appreciate the artist’s ideas in a way no one else has — a way that’s totally unique to you…
That’s why you often hear experts in elite circles claim abstract art is a reflection of who you are.
So we invite you to create alongside the artist’s sprayed expression of the classic X and O — in this striking two-set of abstract canvas art. These bold pieces will enliven any room — while the meaning of these particular “hugs and kisses” … remains your secret.
