American painter Wayne Thiebaud is most famed for his depictions of brightly colored pastries, candies, and cakes. His work in the 50s and 60s just barely pre-dated the pop art movement, and Thiebaud is often credited with influencing the iconic style made famous by the likes of Andy Warhol. I obviously love his paintings for the sweet content alone (do you see those glistening glazed doughnuts?!), but also admire the way his use of punchy colors translates so seamlessly into the present day. As soon as Bake Sale gets a permanent home, you can bet on seeing some Thiebaud prints on our walls.
