ERIC WHITE was born in 1968 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Today he lives and works in Brooklyn.
Over the last few years his paintings have met with international acclaim, with shows in leading galleries and museums around the world, including, between others, Jeffrey Deitch Project and Gladstone Gallery in New York.
Eric White’s paintings reference 20th century film, music and pop culture.
His approach to figuration is both beautiful and disturbing.
His paintings are constructed from elements of our collective consciousness, overflowing with an entropic visual overload.
Whether expressed blatantly or in a subtler manner, his work attempts to tap into those realities and dimensions that exist beyond the fringe of our perception.
In 2010 he received a fellowship for painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts. His imagery is appreciated by many collectors, including some movie stars and personalities from the world of popular music.
