The Art of Todd White Fits the Fashionable

Todd White is taking the world by storm. His instantly recognizable work has been snapped up by Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas, Larry King, Hugh Hefner, Vin Diesel, Drew Carey and Eric McCormack to name a few.

White began as a painter under the watchful eyes of his mother and grandmother, both accomplished artists in Texas. His first paying job as an artist, however, was at Warner Bros studios on the popular series Tiny Toons. White soon after became the character designer for the internationally renowned cartoon, Sponge Bob Square Pants.

The impact is apparent in his paintings; White’s “Rat-pack meets Picasso” style results, in part, from his desire to reveal his characters innermost thoughts and emotions on their faces.  His scenes of Nightlife, Hollywood, and Women indeed bring to life each character’s essence.

The artist was at the Liss Gallery in Toronto earlier this year, and now he has really picked up some steam in the fashion world.  Let’s hope you can get your hands on an original before his works sell for astronomical prices.
