Information

Dave White is a contemporary British Artist who dedicates his work to celebrating popular culture and interpreting emotive issues.  White graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art (Painting) at Liverpool John Moores University and has enjoyed success from the inception of his career, with selection for the Northern Graduates exhibition at the Royal College of Art. 

 

White pioneered the 'Sneaker Art' movement in 2002, with the execution of pop art inspired sneaker oil portraits, leading to long term collaborations with Nike and Brand Jordan. White is one of a handful of artists to have his own signature Jordan releases. White collaborated on an international signature sneaker project with Size? x Nike for the AM95 DW, depicting both the Rabbit and Fox artworks from the Albion Collection.  Phillips New York celebrated this project in their Tongue + Chic sneaker exhibition, hand picking 20 artists to celebrate, including Kaws, Hirst and MurakamI. This exhibition recently went on to Phillips Hong Kong and Shanghai (at K11). 

 

International exhibition career highlights to date include the People’s Square Exhibition Hall (Shanghai) | The Harris Museum | Stockport Art Gallery | Dia Art Centre (New York) | The Walker Art Gallery | Centre for Arts (Rotterdam) | Art Basel Week (Miami) | Truman Brewery (London) | Liverpool International Biennial of Contemporary Art | New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York) on the Project on Creativity with Chuck Close | Hospital Club Gallery (London) and the Goss Michael Foundation (Dallas) for MTV RE:DEFINE | Solo exhibitions in London, Copenhagen, Tokyo, Miami and Los Angeles.

 

Whilst White has pursued many subject matters over the last twenty years, for the last decade he has been focussed on environmental issues by promoting endangered species with his signature expressive portraits.  White continues to support international charities with donations of work for special projects and auctions.
