CONCEPT OF ARTWORK

I have featured Tigers in my work for the last ten years, highlighting their plight as an endangered species, through my portraits in oils and watercolours. I wanted to connect this journey with my sculpture, reflecting the same materials that I use such as the 24 Carat Gold Leaf. My aim was to create movement and a realistic quality to the work, whilst highlighting the scarcity and precious existence of these magnificent creatures.


ABOUT DAVE WHITE (UK)

雕塑構思:

過去10年間,我曾以老虎為主題創作了一些油彩和水彩作品,藉此突顯這個瀕危物種的困境。我想以這個雕塑連繫這個創作歷程,所以我亦在本作中使用曾在舊作中出現的24K金箔。我希望能令本作充滿動感及真實感,並彰顯出這些雄偉動物的稀有和珍貴程度。


戴夫.懷特(英國)

當代英國藝術家戴夫.懷特的作品歌頌流行文化,並探討不少牽動人心的議題。懷特擁有利物浦約翰摩爾斯大學的藝術學士學位,1994年他的作品獲選入一場由皇家藝術學院舉辦的校外畢業生作品展覽,作品亦先後在倫敦蘇富比及各大國際藝術展登場,其創作事業可謂一帆風順。


懷特是2002年「運動鞋藝術」(Sneaker Art)風潮的先鋒人物,他繪畫了一系列具普普藝術風格的球鞋油畫,自此開展了與Nike和Brand Jordan的長期合作,至今仍陸續推出不同聯乘款式。只有極少數的藝術家曾與Jordan聯名設計球鞋,懷特正是其中之一。2016年,懷特與Size ?及Nike聯乘,展開了經典鞋款 Air Max 95的國際聯名運動鞋企劃。有見及此,紐約富藝斯於2018年舉辦的「Tongue + Chic」運動鞋展中亦展出懷特的這款Air Max 95 DM,同場亦展出KAWS、赫斯特及村上隆等合共20位藝術家設計的運動鞋,這個展覽較早前亦巡迴到香港富藝斯及上海(K11藝術空間)展出。
