Background: When Whitney Fair isn’t at his day job, he’s working in his studio on paintings or sculptures, or binge watching horror films and keeping abreast with the horror world. Born and raised in Missouri, he received a BA in Studio (Fine) Art with an emphasis in sculpture, and moved to the Atlanta Metro area shortly after graduating. He always looks at how things are made; finding the creative process and construction of everything very interesting.
At a young age a love for horror was born. It all started with Halloween, costumes, the cool creepy autumn nights, and books like “In a Dark, Dark Room” by Alvin Schwartz and “Goosebumps” by R.L. Stine. As he grew older, he discovered the horror section of the local video rental store and proceeded to live there for his teenage years copiously ingesting all that was on the racks. Spook houses and haunts became a staple for Whitney in college, when him and his best friend would spend their nights full of scares and screams. As he gets older his love for horror and being scared grows more and more. It’s like drinking a fine wine, or visiting with old friends; its comforting. Whitney also realizes the importance of having a childish enthusiasm in life; the older he gets, the younger he acts. Life is meant to be enjoyed, and he enjoys it by laughing with friends, being scared, and the adrenaline and euphoria that comes with it all.
