“I have the greatest fans in the world. They get it, they’re the coolest. I just love them.” – Todd White
Marcus Ashley Gallery features works of local, national, and international artists. Todd White, a resident of Hollywood, is one of the gallery’s local Californian painters with a global fanbase. His oil in canvas prints are in demand not only among the LA elite but also by high-profile events in various parts of the world. In 2011, he donated a Princess Diana portrait to the Diana Awards charity and was awarded the Diana Princess of Wales Gold Medal, one of the UK’s most prestigious recognitions.
Images of remarkable women are one of the signature themes in Todd White art, though most of his subjects are ordinary, everyday females. True Love Forever, for instance, is a picture of a sophisticated lady whom he envisions as a kitten, heart-shaped whiskers and all. Purring with devotion to her beloved, her emotions are presented in the very human rendition of the artist. She is evidently filled with tender affection, a feeling so personal and yet also universal. White is a meticulous and methodical painter, not sitting down to work until the story of his model is complete in his mind, and he tells it as it is.
