Dwight White

Dwight White discussed his pivot from athlete to artist after a life-changing injury.

Born and raised in Houston, artist and muralist Dwight White has called Chicago home for more than 10 years while fully stepping into his craft.

White had a non-traditional path into the art world, starting off as a football player at Northwestern University. It was there where a life-changing injury on the field caused him to pivot into another interest of his, art.

White is inspired by nuanced Black human behavior and personal experiences. His work combines fine art, sociology and experiential design.

Keep up with White's work by giving him a follow at @dwhite.originals on Instagram.
