Dave White in “Amerikanische Kunst & Pop Art”

Back when I was working on Cybelle, circa 2004, an artist got in touch with us to let us know about these paintings of sneakers he was doing. I thought they were cool, and next thing I knew, Dave White was everywhere. He was the official sneakerhead painter and his paintings of his favorite kicks could be seen everywhere from gallery walls to Sneaker Pimps exhibitions. It’s wonderful to see how far he’s come with painting what he loves.

In his newest works, Dave White is showing us a different side, a side that loves comic books. His latest pieces Superheroes and Villains are large scale oil paintings portraying characters including Wonder Woman, Superman, Bat Man, Bat Girl, The Hulk, Captain America and Spiderman. Despite his change in subject, you can still see Dave White’s signature style shine through with drips, splats and texture. My favorite, of course, is Wonder Woman. I’ve been a fan of hers since I was about four and still remember spinning around to undergo my superhero transformation!

Some of Dave White’s pieces from Superheroes and Villains can be currently viewed at a show called Amerikanische Kunst & Pop Art in Frankfurt, Germany through October 15th. His work will be hanging alongside masters such as Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons and Andy Warhol! If you can’t make it to Frankfurt check out the gallery site and I’ve got more photos for you after the jump.

    Hi Shana,
    What shoes are you talking about? His paintings? He does sell paintings but I think you have to go through the gallery or commission something through him. I hope that helps!
