Plot & Details

Filmmaker Neil Berkeley offers this biographical look at the life of acclaimed visual artist Wayne White, a true renaissance man whose work in multiple mediums has made him a pop-culture icon. Over the course of three decades, White has earned a reputation as an artist with a distinctly unique sensibility. While those in the art world know his name well, White found his fame bolstered when he helped to co-create the popular Saturday morning kid's show Pee-Wee's Playhouse. In this film, Berkely follows White across the country to discover his roots, and explore his unique artistic legacy.
