Wayne Thiebaud

I first saw some of Wayne’s art about twenty years ago, and was instantly captivated. His unique style and perspective have been a big influence on my art. It’s interesting to learn from this CBS piece that early on he faced a lot of rejection, simply because when he started he wasn’t doing the in thing. Eventually, he would be attached to the pop art movement and his career propelled into the stratosphere. From the interview he seems like the same nice guy through it all.
