‘Elephant’ is a Giclée Print by acclaimed artist Dave White. From a limited edition of 30, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Dave White is an award winning British artist, working at the forefront of contemporary fine art. Bringing a fresh take to the traditional paint-to-canvas medium, White uses oil and watercolour to create works that are filled with expression, emotion and dynamism. Known for his animal series’, White captures creatures from the natural world with astonishing vividness, exploiting colour, texture and tonality to generate a unique aesthetic.
‘Elephant’ depicts a large, African Elephant, striding across the space of the print in soft tones of light and dark grey. Using dynamic brush strokes and paint splatters, allowing the pigment to course down the paper in thin, fluid lines, White captures the vitality of the monumental mammal, building texture through a brilliant fusion of figurative realism and raw, abstract expressionism.
This wonderful new Elephant was released in aid of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation programme in the world. A charity that is close to Dave White's heart, with a percentage of the artwork profits going to the charity.
