The Drang Gallery are proud to present a collection of new works by British contemporary artist Dave White. Running consecutively at their Padstow and Salcombe galleries, these shows will feature highly anticipated new original paintings, watercolours and exclusive editions, and will be the first time for a new Apex collection to be featured on UK soil, following a solo show in Los Angeles in 2014. His sought after diamond dust editions will feature alongside oversized watercolours and oils in White’s trademark expressive style. Presenting an array of works and subject matter, Dave White’s hopes are not only to inspire and capture the imagination of the viewer, but also stimulate our interests and support in environmental issues. With this in mind, a special charity edition piece will be released with the launch of the exhibition.
Dave White is a contemporary British Artist who dedicates his work to celebrating popular culture and interpreting emotive issues. He has enjoyed success from the inception of his career, having pioneered the Sneaker Art movement in the early 2000’s, gaining international acclaim, and since launching his own signature collaborations with Brand Jordan and Nike. However, the last ten years have seen Dave concentrate on environmental issues and their subject matter. Celebrated sell out exhibition highlights range from the New Museum (NY), Goss Michael Foundation Dallas, Art Basel Miami, Truman Brewery London and subsequent solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Copenhagen & Tokyo.
The Drang Gallery
The Gallery is committed to showing works by established British Artists, whilst offering a diverse program of events and exhibitions each year which showcase emerging talents, both local and national. The Gallery consistently maintains a varied rotation of original and limited edition works by artists from traditional, modern and contemporary oeuvres. Additionally since its opening in Padstow, the Drang Gallery has developed a reputation for showing cutting edge, bold and dynamic art and offers an informed advisory service on investment Art choices.
The Gallery enjoys a ground breaking reputation in Contemporary Art and this is supported by the fact that we work closely with the publishers and studios of Damien Hirst and Marc Quinn amongst other leading contemporary artists. The Drang has also worked exclusively to show sensational bespoke Carbon Fibre sculptures by Formula One engineer Alastair Gibson. The Drang gallery strives to keep its displays stimulating, colourful and exciting, sympathetically blending Modern masters from Picasso and Dali to Sir Peter Blake and Sir Terry Frost with up and coming stars such as Keith Haynes and Rachel Ann Stevenson.
Building on its relationships with British and International artists, notable dealers and publishers, in March 2013, The Drang Gallery developed its market further by opening a sister gallery in Salcombe. In September of the same year The Drang was nominated by Cornwall Today Awards as a contender for The Best Art Gallery In The South West of England and short-listed with four other galleries from the region including Tate St. Ives.
