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.

In past works, MrStarCity critically addressed the lasting effects of generational trauma on black identity, emotional well-being, and more broadly, on the stigmas associated with mental illnesses. The subjects referenced in past bodies of work were inspired by real life experiences and encounters with strangers, friends and family. MrStarCity’s work manifests the experiences and social histories of subjects often omitted from colonial narratives in a kind of autoethnography that is equally attuned to individual perspectives and collective structures. While this new body of work focuses on the “LOVERBOY” character, his work continues to be concerned with figures that extend beyond the representational, and result from his extended research into human emotion, breaking down stigmas and taboos in relation to mental illness.
