Episode Summary

SoLost: Wayne White Goes Thrifting
Are iconoclasts normally cheerful and wry? Wayne White certainly is. The Chattanooga (well Hixson, really), Tennessee-born artist is the product of a feverishly-decorated-and-redecorated Southern home where boys played football and art-making was not what a boy should aspire to. A rebellious teen, White wisely put sports in the background, studied art at Middle Tennessee State University, then moved to New York City in 1979 to pursue his calling. He achieved quick success as an animator, art director and puppeteer on productions as varied as Pee Wee?s Playhouse and videos from the Smashing Pumpkins. He won Emmys and MTV Video Music Awards, produced off-off-Broadway puppet shows and generally made lots of great art in a wide variety of mediums.moreless
