Growing up in Brooklyn, the influence of David “Mr.StarCity” White’s home of New York City is infused throughout his playful street art, fashion, repurposed-object installations, paintings and mixed media sculptures.
White has always been known in the underground NYC nightlife as a versatile creative: writing poetry, making fashion statements, producing music and blurring the definitions of musical genres while doing it, even hosting some of the most iconic NYC parties known to date. It was when he began painting that he found his calling and discovered its potential to affect community and create change through his art.
The works of David White emerge from his spontaneous and physically involved process. Using any materials available at hand, White’s works are full of texture and infused with a sense of his surroundings. His work speaks to a shared experience and his undying commitment to spreading positivity while uplifting the spirits of his community is palpable through each of his paintings.
