Dave White is a contemporary British artist who dedicates his work to celebrating popular culture and interpreting emotive issues. He 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.
“Reflecting a realistic vision from a distance, with an abstraction of expressive paint marks upon closer viewing, my work represents the fragile balance of order and chaos in the natural world and the impact that we are having on our environment. I hope that by inspiring generations of all ages with this project, it will be one small positive step to support Tusk in their vital work protecting endangered species. “
