As far as painting is concerned this generally includes the use of existing imagery from mass culture, preferably borrowed from advertising, photography, comic strips and other mass media sources. Usually with an emphasis on flatness and frontal presentation, characteristics which in modern representational painting have come to be associated with "Naive Art".
David's paintings featuring comic book, film and television legends from the past have been quite popular so to this end he knows that he is not alone in his fascination with the iconic stars from the days of the comic book and silver screen.
David has found in researching his subjects that it has been
difficult not to repeat some by other artists, He has also found that there are many people mass producing images of the famous, using computers to enhance and add “Warhol style” coloring and then printing onto canvas for much profit. All of the work that David does is painted free-hand, without the use of stencil or print and
is brush applied with all reference images sourced by himself.
“Where I have painted the most iconic of stars, I will try and source an image that is not so well known, this will then go some way to showing that the painting is not simply copied from another artists work and also helps to reinforce the fact that the painting is an original."
"You can move too far from the most popular images as these are the ones that after all make them “Idols” and that is what most people are after."
Welcome to IDOLS, where all works are hand painted originals with the benefit of all benefit of reference materials sourced by the artist.
Commission a piece of "real art" is a personal experience with inspiration. It's great for you to enjoy or fantastic as a special gifts to others, or to provide a quality feel in a work environment.
