Anthony White

Black/queer artist and curator Anthony White creates artwork made from common polyactic acid (PLA)—a kind of plastic used for medical devices, food packaging, and disposable cutlery, among other things. He uses this unique medium to make “intricate portraits and still-life[s] that critique the contemporary cultural landscape, and disrupt hierarchies of status and wealth by placing seemingly trivial, low-brow accoutrements in [palatial] and referential environments.” His imagery is formatted as “Instagram-style photos viewed from a cellphone.”
