Californian artist Todd White will be in Liverpool on Saturday 15th June 700-9.00pm, showing some of his fantastic, stunning art work at Rennies Gallery Bold Street.
Todd began his career in a Warner Bros Studios working with Tiny Toons, then forged his own artisic style into what we see today.
You can see Todds originals and signed limited additions at a price you can afford or just wander Rennies and look about captivated by his and the other art around you. Beware though, Todd loves to talk and sketch the people about him. Who knows, you may be one of his next art pieces with a distinctive body, detailed lips, eyes, hair, skin and hands……a trade mark of Todd.
He was the creative idea behind the team that put together ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ and he has gone global ever since, creating more and more wild, wacky, and wonderful art.
Collectors of his work include numerous celebrities such as Abbey Clancey, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Sylvester Stallone to name.
Todd’s accolades too, are so numerous. He has been the official artist for ‘The Grammy Awards’ and was chosen by Warner brothers to celebrate their 70th anniversary of The ‘Wizard of Oz’. Coca Cola has even used his images on their bottles.
This will be a rare opportunity- to meet, chat to and be inspired by a modern artist. Be there and meet him……
Rennies Bold Street Saturday!

Delighted to she his wife in the audience, QUALITY at his very best, supported by a 6 piece band,

A First for Liverpool and indeed His Excellency Mr Garvin Nicholas, the High Commissioner of Trinidad and Tobago visited Liverpool over a two-day period on Tuesday. 28th May. He, along with his staff team Ms Karen Thomas, Ms Achi-Kemba Phillips were on a whistle-stop tour of our fair city, taking in many of our cultural offerings including the newly refurbished Liverpool Central Library, The Liverpool Slavery Museum , a comprehensive tour of the Liverpool Town Hall hosted by the newly instated Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr Garry Millar. This long-awaited visit was orchestrated by a very determined Trinidadian born, Councillor Ms Nathalie Nicholas from the Picton Ward.
During a formal reception at the Liverpool Town Hall, invited Business and Trade related guests were given the opportunity to listen to several presentations opened by Cllr Nick Small Cabinet member for Skill Enterprise and Employment who welcomed his guests from their London base in Belgrave Square.
Ms Karen Thomas-Trade and Business Facilitator for TT High Commission, focused on the huge potential to develop business links with key partners both here and Trinidad and Tobago, presenting four main areas of interest to the HC namely, Creative Industry, IT/Digital and Educational exchange opportunities, Green Energy along with Sea Port related services.
Now that’s when my little ole’ creative imagination, and business head went into over drive, in terms of our strategic location upon the River Mersey and our well documented historical maritime global links with far-flung exotic destinations. The connectivity between Trinidad and Tobago dates back from 1797 as was pointed out by the High Commissioner during his opening address, and in terms of the cultural/creative opportunities that runs through both cities, well the commonalities are endless…..think Festivals, Concerts, think Carnivals, think Music, think Filming locations, Hotels/ Hospitality. Food and Catering industry, Events Management, Cruise Liners, all manner of artistry and dynamism on every possible level, and there stands Liverpool, Trinidad and Tobago Diaspora, along with many other nationalities that make up our very diverse population, enhancing that ”Preferred Destination” status.
Am I slightly bias in my overview of this visit? Guilty on all counts, as it would be a crying shame for all those budding Artist, Entrepreneurs, Dynamic Thinkers with a” can-do” disposition and thirst for new opportunities in new robust and stable destinations to market their creative products, skills and intellectual property when such proposals are still waiting to be fully utilized.
I anticipate the follow-up and outcome of this initial fact-finding Cultural and Business Exchange visit with tempered optimism. Now that’s pretty positive for me, from my observation perspective.
By the way folks LOVING the “Scouse” meal presented at the Liverpool Town Hall Reception, and equally delicious Caribbean themed offerings at Crawford House catered by Executive Master Chef Mr Ian Jaundoo, and his apprentices from Liverpool Community College.
Job Well Done to the “Team Players” who took time out of their busy diaries to support this event!!
His Excellency Mr Gavin Nicholas, don’t be a stranger now that you have met with us!
