Philip David

Philip David commenced painting full-time in 2014, prior to that he was an occasional weekend artist.


Philip doesn't believe that painting should be a reproduction of the splendid world that can be captured easily by photography with all its enhancements and ability to morph the image. He delights in the first stab with a brush and he believes that painting should capture the heart of the human condition rather than to merely reproduce the image.


Philip has an urge to create, draw, paint and sketch every day. He is fascinated by faces and loves capturing the beauty, shapes, shades and colours of faces and eyes. He goes through stages of Realism, Expressionism and Abstraction and loves to work in Oils and Mixed Media.
