Anthony White born Sydney Australia 1976,graduated from National Art School, Sydney in 2005 BFA(Painting).
White uses urban landscape and architecture to work across discliplines of drawing,painting and collage. The works often characterised by an awareness of surface and a preoccupation with the engagement of physicality and the found object. Within his practice there is a concern between how the role of the gesture relates to art objects, and how they operate as functional items in indigenous societies and the difference from art objects of the west.
Anthony White has exhibited widely over the past decade. Recent solo exhibitions have included Anthony White au Pave D’Orsay,Paris (2014), Informal Relations at The Cat St Gallery, Hong Kong (2013) and two solo shows with Sydney gallerist Iain Dawson: Paris Paintings (2010), and Scratching The Surface (2011). He has also been curated into group exhibitions in Sydney, London, Hong Kong, Paris and Brisbane with The Iain Dawson Gallery, The Tim Olsen Gallery, The COMODAA Gallery, The Cat St Gallery and Edwina Corlette Gallery respectively.

His work has been regularly curated into The Signal 8 Show at Hong Kong’s Cat Street Gallery, which also has had a strong interest in presenting contemporary Australian art.
