For over 30 years, Wayne White has made an indelible mark on the creative world. As a designer, painter, puppeteer, sculptor, and musician, White created images and ideas that are an integral part of the pop culture lexicon, including his infamous word paintings featuring pithy phrases such as “I Blame LA” finely crafted onto vintage landscape reproductions. To this day, White gets up every morning to do the only thing his body and mind were made to do…create; whether anyone acknowledges it, or not. “I believe humor is sacred. Humor is one of the most important things we have,” says White in the film. Part biography, part live performance, part raucous comedy, Beauty Is Embarrassing tells the inspiring story of this one-of-a-kind visual artist and raconteur.
