Based in his home state of Texas, Todd White has become a favourite with international collectors as well as US celebrities including Sylvester Stallone and Vin Diesel having started as the character creator for hit Warner Bros animation Sponge Bob Square Pants.
With a style that has been described as Picasso meets the Rat Pack, Todd has an uncanny ability to capture th...e fun and intrigue of culinary, hollywood, and nightlife scenes in captivating ways. His common themes include wine, coffee, cigarettes, cigars, martinis and sex. He creates timeless scenes of diverse attraction.
His paintings captivate people, often invoking laughter and always demanding repeated viewings. By revealing his subjects' innermost feelings, he creates timeless scenes of attraction and intimacy. Beneath the exaggerated features and textured skin of his characters there is a truth that we can all recognise - both theirs and ours.
Todd spends his life people-watching, scribbling down sketches whatever the situation to record an idea for his next work. While his subjects come from everyday life, his perspective is so unusual that he alters the way we perceive people and the roles we play around each other.
He always names his pieces first, visualises faces and personalities, then develops each person's story. In fact, he doesn't paint at all until he can conceptually see that story in his head. And he always tells it as directly as possible - what isn't necessary to the story does not go on the canvas.
