Dave White – Artist Profile

[singlepic id=86 w=320 h=240 float=]Dave White is a world-renowned oil painter based in Liverpool, UK whose penchant for pop culture and gritty, worn-out stuff made him the First Lieutenant to bring Kidrobot 17, Sgt. Robot to life.

Dave White’s colorful, vigorously energetic brand of contemporary pop is inspired by themes that have fascinated him since childhood such as animals, sneakers, comics, military hardware and lovely ladies. His work has appeared in countless solo and group exhibitions and has been featured alongside prominent artists David Hockney and Damien Hirst. In 2003, he exploded onto the urban art scene with a series of sneakers painted in his signature pop art style. Its success led to a slew of exhibitions shows and collaborations with a wide range of global brands.
