He would paint a tube of lipstick, pies, ice cream cones, hot dogs and even paint cans. He also painted landscapes. He was part of the Pop Art movement as he had a lot of interest in 'mass culture' objects. Wayne Thiebaud was known for his exaggeration in his colors, and his very heavy pigment in his paintings. A staple of Theibaud's work was the use of defined shadows which were often found in advertisements. Wayne Thiebaud graduated from which is now CSU Sacramento with his Master's Degree in 1952. He later went on to teach art at UC Davis, and influenced thousands of artists for almost twenty years.
