Spotlight On: Dave White

As a fine artist he was immediately picked up after graduating in 1994 by Anthony Brown and Connaught Brown of Albemarle St. London. He has since gone on to exhibit all over the world and is considered to be an important member of contemporary Pop Art movement. Here we take a closer look at the artist Dave White…

Born (and based) in Liverpool and having studied Fine Art at Liverpool University, Dave White has enjoyed success from the early inception of his career with his vigorously energetic brand of contemporary Pop Art. Awarded ‘Best New Talent’ in Visual Art and short listed for various prizes, his unique painting style caught the eye of the Curator of Tate Liverpool as early as 1991.

From 2002, White’s work was celebrated for his dedication to a sneaker series, creating the movement known as ‘sneaker art’, which brought about international exhibitions and appearances as well as a commissioned series from Nike, of which they hold in their corporate collection.

In 2007 White was commissioned by Coca Cola to create a painting of Jay Z’s new design for Cherry Coke. That same year White’s work went on to be exhibited at the celebrated Dia Arts Centre in New York as well as holding his debut solo exhibition during Art Basel Miami featuring large scale superhero portraits.

In 2008, during Frieze week, White held a solo exhibition of military inspired pop art portraits in a show entitled ‘Planes, Tanks and Automatics’ at the Truman Brewery. Stephen Adams of The Daily Telegraph described him as ‘one of Britain’s most feted up and coming painters’.

A series of solo and group exhibitions in Zurich, Copenhagen and Frankfurt have since followed and White continues to push the boundaries of his work. More recently he exhibited at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York on the ‘Project on Creativity’ with Chuck Close, celebrating AOL’s 25th Anniversary.
