“When I sit down and start drawing on that canvas, my thinking is, this is gonna be the greatest painting that has ever been painted.” – Todd White

Todd White art is known for its seductive and humorous depiction of the fashionable Hollywood scene. In Amsterdam, the artist takes a break from LA to paint another city known to be just as liberal. Holland, known for its festivals, museums, theater, and the red-light district, is both colorful and vibrant. It is this color and vibrancy that the artist strives to emulate in his painting in a heavy and stark contrast of art imitating life. His trademark kaleidoscopic background serves a cornucopia of flowers and fruits found in the world’s third-largest city. The subject is a female Amsterdammer valiantly representing her heritage with a tulip in full bloom displayed in her delicate hands. White’s stamp is apparent in the detailed outlines and the frank expression of pride on the subject’s face.
