131 Notes

On a relentless quest to merge the low brow with the high, Wayne White (who we covered in Hi-Fructose Vol. 19), brings a cartoony, fun-loving aesthetic into his fine art as much as he embeds a sense of irony and subversive humor into his commissioned works, such as the set designs of Pee-wee’s Playhouse among many other projects. Directed by Neil Berkeley, the new documentary Beauty is Embarrassing chronicles White’s struggle to find a balance between his personal and commercial work. The film has already premiered at film festivals such as SXSW, Independent Film Festival Boston, HotDocs and many others, and has been lauded by critics at the Huffington Post and Wired. Take a look at some of White’s works as well as stills from the new film, which hits theaters in September.
