Wayne White - Artist Extraordinaire

A friend told me about the documentary currently airing on Netflix, Beauty is Embarrassing - the profile of Artist Wayne White.  Fascinating guy and an absolutely adorable human.  

I laughed out loud at some of his painting series - a collection of found yard sale art that he buys and then augments and embellishes with outrageous slogans. Of course that's not the only art Wayne creates.  His large puppet heads are also well known.  

My favourite: HOOZY THINKY IZ?

And then, as always, people like this I have to attach a soundtrack to.  I pick Magnolia Electric Company, Sun Kil Moon (Mark Kozelek), Band of Horses, and some Wilco.
