As White’s career developed—he’s currently represented by six up-and-coming galleries internationally—so did his prices, although he has wisely kept them slowly inching upward rather than growing in leaps and bounds. The price range for paintings in the 2017 show was $1200 to $7500, with work selling well, while pieces from his August 2020 exhibition were priced between $3000 and $15,000, with paintings being bought by both American and European collectors.
The artist’s New York City gallery, Monica King Contemporary, discovered his energetic work, which King exhibited this past winter, when White was having his Cycamore Artist Residency solo exhibition with the Deli Grocery gallery after making his paintings at the artist residency, which is another great place to find the work of emerging artists.
The Studio Museum in Harlem’s Artist-in-Residence program has nurtured countless careers of artists of African and Latino descent over the past forty years, including David Hammons, Kehinde Wiley, and Jordan Casteel. Less well known but more international, the artist residency at Art Omi in Ghent, New York has provided workspace and the opportunity for work to be seen by critics, curators, and collectors of such celebrated artists as Cecily Brown, Luca Buvoli, and Hank Willis Thomas, amongst the many who have participated in its summer studio program since it started in 1992.
