We're unlikely to receive more of this item.

We are excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to secure this previously sold out and highly sought after artwork edition # 10/50. This incredible Dave White limited edition is a 16 colour silkscreen with varnish. Printed on Somerset Smooth 400 gsm fine art paper with a deckled edge, the print features a spectacular white diamond dust background. Dave White has signed and numbered each print in the limited edition of 50 on the reverse of the print. Renowned for his depiction of endangered creatures, contemporary painter Dave White tackles one of the world’s most powerful aquatic predators, the great white shark, in this staggering artwork. In an interview in The Independent, Dave White explained, “Obviously great whites have a nasty reputation, but in actual fact they’re fragile and beautiful. I want people to look at how rare they are – that’s the crux of it all.”

This stunning print comes in a handmade frame made smooth matt white wooden boxed frame crafted by our master framers. The print is beautifully shadow float mounted onto a white backing board using 'Artcare Restore' - an archival and fully reversible heat activated adhesive and has a glass pane.
Please note: Our specialist couriers can deliver this item safely and securely to most of the UK Mainland, but due to the fragile nature of the large pane of glass within the frame, specialist packaging and shipping is required with external couriers - quotes to ship overseas are available on request at or by calling +44 (0)1273 766360 (Lines are open Mon-Fri 9am-5.30pm GMT).

About The Artist - Dave White

Dave White is an award winning British artist, working at the forefront of contemporary fine art. White has enjoyed success since graduating from Liverpool John Moore's University, beginning with a showcase at the Royal College of Art in 1994. A range of exhibitions have followed continuously, across the globe, with recent highlights including solo shows ‘Apex’ and ‘Albion’ in 2014, which featured as one of the ‘top five to see’ during Frieze week.

Bringing a fresh take to the traditional paint-to-canvas medium, White uses oil and watercolour to create works that are filled with expression, emotion and dynamism. Known for his animal series’, White captures creatures from the natural world with astonishing vividness, exploiting colour, texture and tonality to generate a unique aesthetic. His works are characterised by an energy of movement, achieved through the sharp splashes, drips and strokes of paint that fill the canvas in a style reminiscent of 1950s abstract expressionism.

The beauty of White’s work lies in its ability to rework these abstract techniques into figurative depictions: the vitality remains, but with a material subject at its centre. As well as shows and exhibitions, White has worked on collaborations with multinational brands, including Nike and Brand Jordan. Following his seminal sneaker portraits of 2002, and the pioneering of the ‘Sneaker Art’ movement, White has moved from painting sneakers on the canvas, to painting on the canvas of sneakers, producing a range of limited edition designs.
