Anthony White (born in Sydney, Australia in 1976) is an Australian visual artist. A National Art School, Sydney, graduate, White has worked and lived in Paris since 2009. White has held solo exhibitions in Sydney, Paris, London and Hong Kong. Predominantly a painter, White’s work has broadly been attributed to the gestural forms of painterly abstraction, where the physical act of painting is key. Landscape and architectural references are used in White's work across the disciplines of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture.
White has been awarded a number of international commissions and residencies, which have reportedly been influential in developing his body of work, surveyed in White’s solo exhibition at Le Pave D’Orsay, Paris (2014).
White received partial funding from the Australian Copyright Agency Ltd Career Fund in August 2015 to attend a lithographic printmaking workshop with Michael Woolworth in Paris. This resulted in the production of a seven-colour lithograph.
He was selected to participate in the 2017 International Painting Symposium at the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre, Latvia,in September 2017.
As well as his work being held in numerous private collections, White’s portrait "Mandrake - Portrait of Baz Luhrmann" (charcoal on paper) was acquired in 2014 for the Australian Portrait Collection of the Tweed Regional Gallery/Tweed River Art Gallery.2015 Lithograph project with Michael Woolworth Publications, Paris funded by The Creative Industries Career Fund, Copyright Agency Australia
