Painter working in River Studios

Max Lawrence White is a Melbourne based artist whose practice is primarily concerned with painting. White completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at RMIT in 2011 and went on to complete an Honours degree in Fine Art at the Victorian College of The Arts in 2012. White’s practice is centred on colour and its tendency to be inexhaustible within its combinations, readings and meanings. Through his works he aims to present an unconventional experience and a challenge to how the viewer perceives colour.


What attracted me to the space was the size, natural light and affordability. I have been a tenant at River Studios since 2013 and have always found it to be consistently professional and flexible in the way that the spaces are managed. These aspects have been of immense help for me throughout the development of my practice.
