About Casper White

Casper White’s new work comes from exploring subcultures that are not traditionally recorded in paintings: a person losing themselves dancing to a DJ in a nightclub; a runway model; a fan starting up from the front of the crowd at the band. Casper is interested in the fantasy and alternative lights these environments foster; the euphoria of the experience and the makeup that creates a fictional, idealised version of oneself. Casper won the BP Portrait Travel Award in 2018 for his proposal to paint people involved within clubbing subcultures.
