David Williams one of our talented artists who will be exhibiting in Artists for the Earth fundraising event September 7th for Save The Kimberley.
David Williams is a self taught West Australian based Artist.
Born to a family of sculptors & painters, his early years were spent living in a shack on the beach in NSW which later became ??The Shack?? Gallery representing family & Artist friends in the area.
His drawing skills were honed at school, daydreaming out the window in maths, sketching out dreams of perfect waves in faraway locations all over his books.
After years spent drifting around Australia and overseas ? surfing, exploring, sketching, playing guitar in a punk band, working in mind numbing jobs, inventing things & co-founding a clothing label, David began painting full time in 1998. His works first showed in markets & galleries he owned in Melbourne & Queensland Australia.
Inspired by Travel, Birds, Music, Trees, Animals & the Sea, David?s work embraces a wide range of media - Acrylics & Oils on canvas, Pastels & Charcoals on paper & mixed media Sculpture. He currently works from his studio and out in the landscape, while travelling & painting for exhibitions in Australia & overseas.
David?s works explore the lighter, more humorous aspects of life, as well as the darker side of mankind?s relationship with Animals & the Planet.
He is represented by Galleries in Brisbane, Broome, New Zealand, Singapore & the USA. His paintings hang in collections worldwide.
David has recently been selected by Austrade as one of a handful of artists to represent Australia in exibitions & events around the world.
