Weird Answers with Artist Wayne White
Wayne White’s adherence to a roaming, insatiable creative impulse is perhaps the most notable component of his extensive output. His work has always been fantastical, from his work in the East Village Eye to Pee-Wee’s Playhouse and the Smashing Pumpkins‘s famed Tonight, Tonight music video. His work embraces a juvenile twang, discarding decorum in order to preserve a fun aesthetic experience. Visual conundrums are meant to deconstruct reality and often do so with a satirical bent. I spoke with Wayne in an attempt to see the world a bit more clearly through his own eyes via the interweb.
