‘Tarantula’ is a Screen Print by acclaimed contemporary artist Dave White. Printed onto Somerset Tub Paper, and finished with a deckled edge, the print is from a limited edition of 10 and 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.
‘Tarantula’ depicts the large, black and orange arachnid, its eight legs splayed at the centre of the print. Using dynamic brush strokes and paint splatters, allowing the pigment to course down the paper in thin, fluid lines, White captures the motion of the spider, building texture through a brilliant fusion of figurative realism and raw, abstract expressionism.
