Wayne White is an artist, art director, puppeteer, set designer, animator, cartoonist and illustrator. Born and raised in Chattanooga, Wayne has used his memories of the South to create inspired works for film, television and the fine art world. He has worked as an illustrator for the East Village Eye, New York Times, Raw Magazine, and the Village Voice and was awarded three Emmys as a designer for the hit television show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse . Wayne’s more recent work has been as a fine artist creating paintings and public works that have been shown all over the world. In 2009, his life and career were chronicled in a monograph edited by Todd Oldham. The book features hundreds of images from Wayne’s earliest work as an illustrator all the way to his most recent sculptures. Since the book’s release, he might well add ‘performer’ to his bio, since traveling the country delivering an entertaining presentation where he discusses his life and work, while making time for a little banjo and harmonica playing.
