Eric White was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. He has shown extensively in galleries and museums around the world. Relying heavily on the dream-state, metaphysics, and 1940s Hollywood for inspiration, White examines the boundaries of human perception in conceptually complex and expertly rendered oil paintings. He has served as adjunct professor at The School of Visual Arts in New York City since 2006. In 2010 White received a Painting Fellowship from The New York Foundation for the Arts. A collection of his work, “It Feeds Itself,” was published in 2003, followed by a book based on his solo exhibition “Who Are Parents?” in 2005. He currently lives and works in New York City.
