Biography

EDWINA WHITE's fictionalized portraits and whimsical vignettes are often injected with a gentle, wry humor. Her delicate drawings offer a nostalgic sensibility in a most contemporary way. Some works capture the glance and pose of a certain character or the staging of a story, while others project the possibilities of her and our imagination.

From Australia, Edwina White lives and works in New York City. Her art work has been exhibited throughout the US (Kinz Tillou), Australia (Olsen Irwin), the UK and Asia. Her works are included in the collections of the Hayward Gallery (UK), Angela Missoni (IT) and Teresa Heines Kerry (US). Her award winning illustrations have been published in the New York Times, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and profiled in Taschen’s 100 Best Illustrators. Her animations are featured in SEMBENE, an African documentary which premiered at Cannes film festival 2015 and she has been spotted live drawing in performance, with novelist Zadie Smith.
