Jeremie White's "Hockey Heroes" exhibition of original oil paintings is timed to coincide with the Memorial Cup in Kelowna / May, 2004.
These paintings have been inspired by the historical importance of hockey to Canada. Jeremie's childhood memories of collecting bubblegum cards have lead to his large canvas tributes of these Canadian pop culture heroes. A more innocent time is captured in these organic pieces.
Born in Vancouver, White studied Fine Arts, then Illustration and Graphic Design at Capilano College. He graduated with honours in 1991.For over a dozen years he has been an Art Director with Suburbia, one of BC's largest advertising agencies. Jeremie is currently the
Creative Manager and has enjoyed countless awards in his advertising, design and illustration career. During this time his oil paintings have been featured in Applied Arts, Report on Business and Cosmopolitan.
His client list includes Pacific Western Airlines, EA Sports, McDonald’s, 7/11, Canucks and the NHL.Recently, he created a website to showcase his passion for hockey: www.SportsArt.ca
Jeremie White paints in oils, with a passion and energy that exposes the mark-making process. Using acrylic gel mediums in his underpainting, he layers thick, bold brushstrokes of oil paint, creating texture and depth.
White’s inspirations include Malcolm Liepke and John Singer Sargent.
