Transcript of Wayne Thiebaud
Printmaking The type of media he uses consist of: Oil paintings
Pastels He is often incorrectly associated with American Pop art because of his many images of banal objects. However, unlike Pop artists, Theibaud worked from life, not from media images, and his engagement was evident in his loose brushstroke, whereas a hard-edge painting style, signifying mechanical reproduction, was preferred by many Pop artists. The influence of Abstract Expressionism on his work can be seen in the thick brushstrokes and bold use of color that characterize many of his paintings. A painting movement in which artists typically applied paint rapidly, and with force to their huge canvases in an effort to show feelings and emotions, painting gesturally, non-geometrically, sometimes applying paint with large brushes, sometimes dripping or even throwing it onto canvas. Abstract Expressionism: It's characterized by a strong dependence on what appears to be accident and chance, but which is actually highly planned. Abstract expressionism: Influences: He was greatly influenced by Abstract Expressionists and the Bay area figurative movement. Interesting/Personal Information: As a teenager, Thiebaud established himself as a cartoonist, working for a brief time as an animator for Walt Diseny studios. Interesting/Personal Information: His budding career as a cartoonist and graphic designer was interrupted by World War 2.
From 1942 to 1945, Thiebaud served in the U.S. Army Air Force, where his skills as an artist kept him out of combat. Interesting/Personal Information: During the war, he met and married Patricia Patterson.
Their first child, Twinka, was born in 1945. Their second daughter, Mallary Ann, was born in 1951.
In 1958, Thiebaud and his wife Patricia divorced.
Their daughter Twinka became a celebrated artist's model, author, and painter. Interesting/Personal Information: Wayne Thiebaud later married filmmaker Betty Jean Carr, and adopted her son Matthew, who also became an artist.
They had a second son, Paul, who became a noted art dealer and gallerist. Resources: "Wayne Thiebaud Biography." -- Academy of Achievement. N.p., n.d.

Wayne painted them to help identify objects more clearly. He liked things based upon simple shapes like triangles and circles, which he tried to orchestrate them. Critique: 2. He drew the objects from life. They are considered a still life. He painted them for commercial appeal for stores. 3. It's Abstract Expressionism. Because his artwork was confused with Pop Art, but he painted them by staring at the objects and putting his own style to it. 4.The gumballs were painted to represent the actual object. To make it look realistic but unique in it"s own way. The colors Wayne chosen show all the true colors you would find in a gumball machine. He made sure the machine had the exact shape to compare to a real one. Critique: 5. Honestly, I don't think he had a meaning to it. He was just doing something he loved and turned it into a career. In the process, he became inspired by regular life objects and put a twist on them. 6. The artwork gives me the feeling of experiencing the time back in the 1960's. Showing me what food and type of candy they had and how it's different from present. 7. My favorite part of it, was the individual gumballs. He gave a variety of color to them and not just a certain color scheme to it. The color made it look joyful and exciting to see with the eyes. Critique: 8. The reason I picked Wayne Thiebaud, was because he seemed to actually enjoy the type of art he does. Instead of being so serious with it, he made it fun and something you would want to see more of. Wayne did a wonderful job of really getting into his artwork. He will be greatly remember for his unique artistic view of real life objects. 1920 - Born 15 November in Mesa, Arizona
