tedx:

Some rustic landscapes have an absurd sense of humor.

The much-revered artist Wayne White turns the dramatic landscape paintings you’re most likely to find on motel walls and in grandparents’ living rooms into something else completely.

Like a Thomas Kinkade painting on LSD, White’s landscapes transmit messages like, “Luv Hurts.” “Good Looking People Having Fun Without You.” “Artificial Cherry Flavor.” “Slow Burn.”

The hilarious, irreverent, and impressively-bearded southerner gave a talk at TEDxKC last August about art, life, bowling leagues, Captain Kangaroo, and growing up in the south. He dishes about his time spent directing the art for Pee-wee’s Playhouse, following around Art Spiegelman, and many other adventures.

He is awesome!
