Dave White & Americana
Today sees the opening of Art & Sole cover artist Dave White's latest solo show at the Coningsby Gallery, London. Entitled Americana, the exhibition explores American heritage and the spirit of the West, featuring a series of large scale oil paintings alongside limited edition prints and works on paper.
White's oil canvases capture the rawness of the Western movie era using his trademark expressive impasto style (made famous by his acclaimed sneaker portraits), while the watercolours on paper, presented in the same dynamic style, include a selection of animal works - a subject White hasn't explored since his debut exhibition 20 years ago.
Following the London exhibition, Americana will tour to Copenhagen in September and plans are also in development for the exhibition to tour to New York in the near future. For more on White see here, here and here
