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.
‘Parrot II’ depicts the brightly coloured head of a parrot, in tones of azure-blue, emerald-green, and fiery-orange. White has captured the texture of the bird - from its brittle beak, to its beady eye, and bristling feathers - with astonishing intensity, employing the raw, dynamic techniques of abstract expressionism. Brash brush strokes, bold paint splatters, and fluid drips of pigment bring the bird to life, in a beautiful fusion of the abstract and figurative.
