About BEAUTY IS EMBARRASSING
Meet Wayne White—affable Emmy award-winning artist and profane, prolific iconoclast full of frenetic energy and southern verve. You may recognize his incredibly creative artwork from Pee-wee’s Playhouse or music videos for the Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Gabriel. Or perhaps you’ve seen one of his hysterically irreverent paintings—where he crafts cleverly concise words in a 3D effect onto repurposed vintage landscape reproductions. Director Neil Berkeley quickly draws you in as he steadfastly trains his camera on the artist, wisely letting White act as his own narrator. White essentially sums up the trajectory of his artistic life and his process when he states early on, “I want to try everything I can. I want to take this painting idea and see if you can do a puppet version of it. I want to take this cartooning and turn it into a set. I want to take this set and turn it back into a painting.” And so he does.
