Todd White's stylish and distinctive figurative artwork has won him an international reputation that keeps on growing. His paintings captivate people, often invoking laughter and always demanding repeated viewings. By revealing his subjects' innermost feelings, he creates timeless scenes of attraction and intimacy.
Born in 1969 in Texas, he Todd relocated to Hollywood in his twenties and worked in animation, developing characters at some of the most renowned production studios in the country. He was even part of the lead team for the international hit cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants. During this period Todd started to forge his artistic style by experimenting with colours and concepts. He eventually arrived at the working method that now guides him through every piece. He always names his pieces first, visualises faces and personalities, then develops each person's story. In fact, he doesn't paint at all until he can conceptually see that story in his head. And he always tells it as directly as possible - what isn't necessary to the story does not go on the canvas.
Todd was chosen from hundreds of artists as the Official Artist of the GRAMMY® Awards in 2007, and two years later he was invited by Warner Bros. to contribute to a major design exhibition celebrating the 70th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. Todd has also collaborated with Coca Cola to produce limited edition bottles and cans.
