Last Thursday saw a busy night at the Hospital Club at the opening of Dave White’s stunning show Natural Selection. The gallery space was packed and there was a real buzz of excitement in response to this artist’s fantastic new works.
Natural selection is a collection of works featuring images of endangered animals. Dave White has a real talent for capturing the essence of an animal; studying the wildlife and reproducing it to great effect. Visitors to the show were visibly impressed by the power of the works and several of the pieces sold within the first hour of the opening, confirming his place as one of Britain’s most exciting up and coming artists.
It is Dave White’s largest solo exhibition to date comprising original oils, watercolours and limited edition prints. The show will be continuing at the Hospital Club until the 7th July and after that works will be available for purchase through artrepublic. We also have several prints from the show that are available to purchase now.

British pop artist legend Sir Peter Blake has taken inspiration from his most famous artwork to bring together British cultural figures he most admires alongside family and friends, as he marks his 80th birthday.
This new version of the iconic St Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album artwork has been created for a special birthday celebration of Blake’s life which will take place at Wayne Hemingway’s Vintage festival, Boughton House, Northamptonshire, in July.
The recognisable figures featured in the piece are amongst Twiggy, Amy Winehouse, Grayson Perry, JK Rowling, and Noel Gallagher.
“I’ve chosen people I admire, great people and some who are dear friends. I had a very long list of people who I wanted to go in but couldn’t fit everyone in – I think that shows how strong British culture and its legacy of the last six decades are.”
Singer Noel Gallagher was said to be very pleased to be included. “To be on there with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Mick Jagger and Paul Weller, just those three people alone, is amazing for me.”
