Todd White - Bar Tales

Actor-director Sylvester Stallone has purchased Todd's prestigious Bar Tales (Wizard of Oz) piece.

Bar Tales was created to mark the 70th anniversary of the landmark film The Wizard of Oz, and the painting was the keynote work of the 'Inspirations of Oz' Fine Art Collection exhibited in Miami as part of the anniversary celebrations.

Stallone, best known for his movie roles in Rocky and Rambo, has long been a fan of Todd's work. He has been well-known as an art collector internationally for over two decades now, snapping up pieces by Colombian painter Fernando Botero amongst others. In collecting Todd's work, he joins fellow Hollywood actors, while continuing a boxing-related collector theme after world heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko visited Todd in his studio this year.

Perhaps less well-known is the fact that Stallone has himself been painting since his teens, signing his early pieces 'Mike Stallone'. In 2009, he exhibited some of his own abstract expressionist portraits at Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the world's biggest art fairs. Earlier this year, a further 30 works went on show as part of a Stallone retrospective at Gmurzynska's gallery in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

For Todd, Stallone has long been an influence. "Like pretty much everyone else of my generation, Sylvester Stallone is a huge, larger-than-life character whose work has really influenced our culture," he says. "His portrayal of Vietnam veteran John Rambo and his career-defining role as Rocky Balboa in 1976 produced flawed, nuanced heroes for our time, and you just can't help but be influenced by such performances."

Todd has plans to join forces with Stallone on future works - watch this space!
