About Mark Mothersbaugh

While best known as one of the founders of the iconic new wave band Devo, Mark Mothersbaugh quietly transformed himself into a renaissance man after the group's '80s peak. By the time Devo broke up in 1991, Mothersbaugh had already begun working as a composer for hire, having penned background music for Pee Wee's Playhouse, among other programs, films, and video games. He later provided music for the popular animated television series Rugrats, several Wes Anderson films (including Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, and The Royal Tenenbaums), and The Lego Movie. From the mid-'90s onward, Mothersbaugh also presented over 150 gallery shows of his visual art, including a major career retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.
