There is no doubt that Pro Hart has been the single most important influence in David’s life. David has learned from his father’s experience, yet developed his own technique and style. You could best describe him as an action painter, whose strongly knifed works are remarkably defined and delicate. Paint is spilled over the surface creating energy, texture and depth that allows David to carve images on to the canvas.
David is an explorer who is not afraid to investigate techniques such as glazing. Seemingly endless layers of colour are applied then rubbed away to allow the light to emerge from the depths.
David has benefited from a lifetime of exposure to exceptional art and artists who he has been fortunate enough to meet as a young boy in his family home.
Australia’s harshness and beauty have been distinct influences in David’s life. Growing up in the Australian bush has left David with memories of colourful characters and the challenges they face living in the outback. Although David now lives surrounded by beautiful beaches and lush hinterland, his success has not changed his connection with the environment, nor his passion and determination to keep reaching for new heights.
David looks to express new things as he learns more about life. He paints from his soul and produces work that reflects his love of painting.
As his popularity continues to soar, so do the numerous offers made by galleries throughout the country to represent his work.
