Beauty is Embarrassing
“Beauty Is Embarrassing is a funny, irreverent, joyful and inspiring documentary featuring the life and current times of one of America’s most important artists, Wayne White.”
“Beauty is Embarrassing” showcases the highlights of White’s artistic life while laughing at his creative lows. At the film’s whole, White narrators the struggles to best and accurately describe the artistic passions which lead us to success—White’s everlasting quest to make art fun, financially successful, and funny.
At the film’s core, it is an embarrassing expression about following our own passions; within its stratosphere, after you take a space shuttle up and analyze the complexities of White’s art, the film pulsates with creative character and affinity to look at art and the world, creatively, different.
The myriads of interviews in the film and the artwork showcased, barely give justice to an artistic world only some illustrators, puppeteers, painters, or any creatives could only hope to scratch. If you take the film’s name to the kitchen, the recipe reads to contradict realism.
Swing over to Filter Foundry, sign-up, and reap the benefits of a creative social palace. We hope you enjoy “Beauty is Embarrassing” and its unique look laughing at the world and then painting it.
