Wayne White: You’re Supposed To Act All ImpressedFamed LA Artist Bringing His Autobiographical Stage Show To The Cinefamily for One Night Only: November 16th, 2010
After touring his one-man, biographical stage show across the country, Emmy and Billboard award winner Wayne White will be entertaining a Los Angeles crowd for the first time on November 16th, 2010. The accomplished painter, illustrator, puppeteer, set designer, sculptor and Southerner has chosen the Cinefamily as the site for the show and the event promises to be a high energy, laughter and music filled spectacle featuring arresting images, video clips, and puppets from the artist’s life and 30 year career.
White is better known for his work as one of the original designers and puppeteers on the hit show Pee Wee’s Playhouse, for which he won three Emmy’s, but has recently achieved great notoriety in the fine art world. His paintings featuring monolithic letters crafted onto vintage landscape paintings have been shown in galleries around the world. His career has been documented in the 382-page monograph, Maybe Now I’ll Get The Respect I So Richly Deserve, edited by designer Todd Oldham. White was also art director for Peter Gabriel’s “Big Time” and The Smashing Pumpkins “Tonight, Tonight” music videos for which he was honored by both Billboard and the MTV Music Video Awards.
White has been honing his one-man show at college campuses, bookstores and barrooms from NYC to Miami and Chattanooga to Pasadena. The talk features a hilarious narrative from the artist along with vivid images of his life and 30 year career. During the show White will also be showing off his skills on the harmonica and the banjo.
The event will take place at the Cinefamily (611 N Fairfax Ave, LA, 90036) on November 16th at 8:00pm. After the show guests are invited to stay for a reception with Mr. White where he will be signing copies of his book.
