Hi, I'm David and I love painting people who move their body in extraordinary ways - people who embody excellence.

      I work with pro athletes, leading movers and brands that have MOVEMENT in their DNA.

      For the past 6 years, I’ve dedicated my work to studying the human body in motion. I’m fascinated by this super-machine as well as the people who push their limits.

      My work revolves around moments of feeling ALIVE, fully embodied and happy to just MOVE!

      I create 3-4 fine art collections per year, as well as collaborations with brands and sports organizations who want to bring my expression of movement into their projects.

      I’ve been drawing since before I can remember. One of my earliest memories is being 3 and drawing the sun with all the sun rays around it.

       

      I’ve always been into figurative art, went through a long portrait phase in high school and towards the end of my Fine Art degree at Coventry University I became obsessed with painting the body in motion.

       

      The feedback wasn’t very enthusiastic and especially after graduating and going around trying to get into galleries, I was turned down over and over and told that painting athletes is not really “art”.

       

      And yet I couldn’t stop thinking about movement and that’s all I wanted to paint!!

       

      After a lot of disappointments, I decided to stop trying to convince the wrong people, and instead focus all my energy on developing my art and finding my own tribe who gets my vision.

       

      In 2016 I started the Just Move Project and to date, I have painted over 400 paintings of the most incredible movers on Earth. A selection of my work was exhibited in my first solo show also called Just Move, in March 2017. I’ve also been part of more shows in London, San Francisco and Birmingham.

       

      I’m very grateful for all the collectors who connected with my art and brought it into their homes or gifted it to loved ones. Your support means a lot to me and it helps me create more art!
