To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Sneaker Art series, the show will feature two new highly sought-after limited edition prints and three original paintings from the archive of this celebrated artist.
Pioneering the Sneaker Art Movement
It was back in 2003 that White initiated the Sneaker Art movement, with his series of Pop Art inspired oil paintings of the most desirable trainers from his personal collection.
A small series of highly sought-after editions were released at this time (and long since sold out). White's latest show at Enter Gallery is a rare opportunity to revisit this coveted collection and to own a piece of history that celebrates 20 years since the launch of his Sneaker series.
These portraits of beloved footwear, characterised by the same energetic drips of pigment that have gone on to define his oeuvre, led to long-term collaborations with Nike and Brand Jordan.
Since 2003, White's art has featured in a number of sneaker art exhibitions around the world. His Rabbit and Fox works from his enormously-popular Albion series were immortalised on the AM95 DW for an international project with Size? x Nike.
Keeping it Casual
White’s latest show was sparked by renewed interest in his sneaker artworks after they featured in ‘Art of the Terraces’ – a Liverpool Museum exhibition which is on until 12th March 2023.
Through the medium of art, the show is a celebration of thefashion, culture and music of football fans that began in the late 70s and spawned sneaker culture.
You’ll find White’s pieces exhibited alongside Turner Prize winners, Mark Leckey and Mark Wallinger, and leading contemporary artists such as Leo Fitzmaurice, Pete McKee, Lucy McKenzie and Ross Muir.
