Proud pioneer of the ‘Sneaker Art’ movement, during which he created Pop Art-style oil portraits of the world’s best trainers, Dave White even had his own signature Air Jordan release – a swoosh-free version emblazoned with stars and paint splashes. During the last decade, White has turned his attention to endangered species, using an expressive style to create oil portraits and prints which have helped generate funds for wildlife charities.
