Todd White always names his pieces first, visualizes faces and personalities, then develops each person's story. In fact, he doesn't paint at all until he can conceptually see that story in his head. And he always tells it as directly as possible - what isn't necessary to the story doesn't go on the canvas.

"Wanna Fight" is painting of 3 fighters, one in white trunks, one in red trunks and one in black trunks. The faces of these fighters are distorted, even for a Todd White work, probably emphasizing the torture that those faces are subject to each fight. Their bodies, especially their upper torsos are also very distorted and I think that this distortion is supposed to represent the muscle mass that each fighter must maintain to do his job well. As usual Todd White has very sharp edges to this work, which is his style. The verticle lines of the ropes around the ring, are in contrast to the verticle figures and their distortions. This work is quite compelling.

Todd White is an impulsive observer of detail, always studying and absorbing figures, faces and features. Subconsciously, he spends his life people-watching - scribbling down sketches whatever the situation (often on napkins, even tablecloths) to record an idea for his next work. Todd White's paintings captivate people. They often invoke laughter and demand repeated viewings. By revealing his subjects' innermost feelings Todd creates timeless scenes of attraction and intimacy. Beneath the exaggerated features and textured skin of his characters there is truth. Both theirs and ours.

Todd's subjects come from the everyday world, but his perspective is so unusual that he alters the way we perceive people and the roles we play around each other. He studies body language, using its nuances to capture the subtleties of what people show and hide.

There is no denying the Art of Todd White is infectious, resulting in White currently becoming one of the most collected llving American artistsy!
