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. ‘Stag’ depicts the statuesque head of a stag, his elegant neck curved as his face turns towards the viewer, his majestic antlers twisting towards the top of the print. Using thick, dynamic brush strokes, adding flecks and paint splatters, and allowing the pigment to course down the paper in thin, fluid lines, White builds figurative realism through layers of textured abstraction, capturing the presence and vitality of the deer with astonishing prowess.
