Taylor White is a figurative artist who utilizes the human form to depict conversations, explore fields of consciousness, and realize the cathartic points at which the soul confronts its physical form. Heavily influenced by improvisational dance, her work bases its vocabulary on the exquisitely expressive movements of the human figure. Combining refined techniques of classical training with bright, unexpected color choices born from the residue of street art and pop culture, White’s work is a bold and kinetic pursuit of the delicate harmonies that exist in that sweet spot between order and chaos.
White was raised in Raleigh, NC and educated at the Savannah College of Art and Design, completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration in 2007. Upon graduating, she began contributing her efforts to acclaimed Oslo-based advertising agency TRY/Apt, as the first and only full-time illustrator hired in a Norwegian agency at the time.
Three years later her choice to pursue painting brought her to Australia, where she found a new kind of success traversing the textures of urban environments, furnishing the streets and galleries of Melbourne with her uniquely haunting, expressive portraits of forlorn youth.
She has exhibited internationally from Melbourne to Berlin, LA, Miami, Atlanta and Detroit. She has contributed to events for Just Another Agency, Analogue/Digital, Juddy Roller, Outer Space Project, Richmond Mural Project, Murals in the Market, and SCOPE Miami Beach.
She is currently based in Raleigh, NC.
