Jack White launches new website to showcase his art

Jack White has launched a brand-new website aimed to exhibit his artwork, graphic designs for album covers, and interior design for Third Man records.

The new site will feature a collated collection of many of the works that the former White Stripes rocker currently shares on his Instagram.

The renaissance man has a passion for upholstery, photography, sculpting and curating other artists work for his Third Man records home in Detroit. 

The website comes with the official description: “Born in Detroit in 1975 and currently residing in Nashville, Jack White is an interdisciplinary artist, equally as conversant in sculpture and upholstery as he is in music and songwriting.”

Adding: “Exposed to both mid-century modern design and the local Detroit Cass Corridor artists like Gordon Newton and Robert Sestok from his work apprenticing under master upholsterer Brian Muldoon, White would take those seedlings of inspiration and go on to open his own upholstery shop, Third Man Upholstery, in 1996.”

The site aims to carry that legacy online, stating: “Housed in the artist-friendly Pioneer Building in Detroit, White would not only run his business from the location, but also utilize it to work on sculpture and songwriting. Upon his closing of the space in 1998, he left a ceiling beam scrawled with the message “Jack White was here and part of him will never leave.”

“While White’s sculpture and upholstery have largely been confined to private work over the past twenty years, he’s further explored his design muse via his Third Man Records umbrella. Whether interiors, visuals for print, photography, industrial, film or literally any combination of the bunch, White designs with purpose, with conviction and with passion.”
