David “Mr StarCity” White

Brooklyn-born and based out of New York City and Los Angeles, David "MrStarCity" White has become increasingly recognized for his experimental storytelling through means of figurative painting and poetry. MrStarCity creates bodies of work that span a diverse range of media from painting to sculpture, poetry to music, performance to the moving image. In recent years, MrStarCity has become increasingly recognized for his playful abstract portraits of both real and imagined subjects, embodying an otherworldly synthesis of the beauty, passion and conflict that define our world.
