Dave White, born in Liverpool in 1971, had his first solo exhibition at the age of 18. Awarded ‘Best New Talent in Visual Arts’ in the Daily Post Art Prizes, he went on to study Fine Art (Painting) at Liverpool John Moores University.
In 2002, White decided to paint his sneaker collection in a pop art style, leading to international exhibitions and press coverage for the next few years. The collections led to tours and appearances all over the world, including China, Japan, Australia, the USA and Europe.
The latest series of works ‘Superheroes and Villains’ brings a body of work, executed on a large scale, created in an explosive expressionist pop art style with rich impasto oil paint. Inspired by his love of comics from an early age, it was only a matter of time before this subject matter was brought to life in White’s signature style of painting.
This collection, entitled ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’ created specifically for the Fame Collective event to celebrate Art Basel Miami, will exclusively feature large canvases. In the first exhibition presenting the paintings to a public audience, the exhibition will be a rare chance to view such a body of work.
