Mid-Century Art: Wayne White

Last night I happened to watch Beauty is Embarrassing. Or, honestly, just part of it because I happened to flip to it halfway in. But I quickly realized that Wayne White is one of those artists who's been in my life forever without me ever knowing his name.

I grew up on Pee-Wee's Playhouse. I have long proclaimed "Tonight Tonight" as one of the best videos of all time.

The Bruce Campbell Old Spice ad he worked on is one of my favorite commercials ever.

At this point, I am far behind the Wayne White curve. His work is no longer (what I would call) affordable, but you should definitely watch the movie and also check out his art. And if you have the coin, put a print on your wall. If a poster or affordable print ever becomes available again, you'll find one on my wall too.
