Born in Liverpool 1971 and having studied Fine Art at Liverpool University (in John Lennon’s old studio), Dave White has enjoyed success from the early inception of his career with his vigorously energetic brand of contemporary Pop Art.
Selected for the Northern Graduates show at the Royal College of Art in 1994, Dave White went on to exhibitions in London and international art fairs with his series of animal portraits courtesy of Anthony Brown and Connaught Brown of Albemarle St. Highlights of this period include the Blue Cross Centenary exhibition at Sotheby’s in 1997 alongside David Hockney and group shows at Connaught Brown with Picasso, Dubuffet, Miro and others.
From 2002, Dave White’s work was celebrated for his dedication to a sneaker series, which brought international exhibitions and appearances with companies like Nike who own a series of his work in their corporate collection. His collection was exhibited globally examples including the People’s Square Exhibition Hall in Shanghai to the Atlanta Contemporary Art Centre in the USA.
In 2007 Dave White was commissioned by Coca Cola to create a painting of Jay Z’s new design for Cherry Coke. Attending the A’ List event in New York, White’s work was exhibited at the celebrated Dia Arts Centre. 2007 also brought Dave White’s debut solo exhibition during Art Basel Miami ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’ featuring large scale superhero portraits, where White was featured in the Art Basel press and Miami TV and radio.
More recently, in 2008, Dave White held his debut solo exhibition of his vintage military inspired pop art portraits in a show entitled ‘Planes, tanks and automatics’ at the Truman Brewery during Frieze week which was featured in the Wall St Journal and “sold briskly” (Bloomberg Press NY) in spite of recent economic turmoil. Stephen Adams of The Daily Telegraph recently described him as ‘one of Britain’s most feted up and coming painters’.
