Good and warm weather are good things but how about good art shows? Yes that adds to the flavour.
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. He has enjoyed success from the inception of his career with selection for the Northern Graduates exhibition at the Royal College of Art in 1994, then exhibiting his initial animals series. A highlight of this period was exhibiting at Sotheby’s London to celebrate the Blue Cross centenary and international art fairs.
White has continued to reflect popular culture and in 2002 he pioneered the ‘Sneaker Art’ movement with the execution of pop art inspired sneaker portraits. This has led to a long term collaborations with Nike and Brand Jordan.
