Who is Rodney White?
Rodney White was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia and now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His work is about the dialogue that each person has with himself and others on both a subconscious and conscious level. Rodney’s art is a visual message that encourages each of us to look for something higher to which we can aspire, as opposed to settling for a pre-ordained path. It is a reflection of an individual’s dream and how it coincides with the sweeping dream of humanity.
When Rodney was a student of visual communications, he began to see the power that commercial advertising messages could wield. Instead of selling products, he decided to use the medium to offer a more beneficial gift to the viewers. Themselves. Complete with a “Money Back Guarantee.”
Rodney uses visual cues from vintage advertising and Americana to convey the bygone era of optimism, one where advertising was meant to inspire. Rodney’s art is an open journal of his personal path of belief and optimism. It illustrates the moment of enlightenment that we all seek. One can see the methodology behind his thinking and experience, voyeuristically, his personal growth by looking at his art.
Rodney’s paintings have been exhibited in national museums, galleries and Vinny Chase’s living room. In addition to HBO’s hit series Entourage, Rodney’s work has been featured in numerous television shows and movies, such as CBS’s How I Met Your Mother and The Good Wife, HBO’s Big Love and Sony Pictures’ 2012, to name a few.
