Wayne Thiebaud’s Paintings

Wayne Thiebaud is an American painter whose most famous works are of cakes, pastries, toys and lipstick. Technically, Thiebaud is associated with the Pop art movement because of his interest in objects of mass culture. Although his works, executed during the fifties and sixties, slightly predate the works of the classic pop artists and contain more detailed oriented strokes and attention to colors and texture. Thiebaud uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects, and the well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are almost always included in his work.

BLEU. She's an oasis child busy being born in New York. She lives in the East Village and spends time writing, reading, making movies, shopping at Chrome Hearts and Opening Ceremony. You might find her indulging at Momofuku, or, she is spinning off those calories at Equinox while simultaneously doing homework.
