Bio

London based artist David Shillinglaw graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2002, since then he has exhibited in galleries in cities across the globe such as New York, Beijing, Berlin and Istanbul.

David’s folk inspired work depicts human faces, eyes, charachters and other mystical symbols. Often combined together in bright colours to create a psychedelic visual treat . Done in epic scales, wrapping buildings and walls around the world – His murals bring together the same sense of joy, adventure and curiosity that can be seen surrounding Davids life.

These re-occurring¬†motifs can be seen throughout his practise. He believes the head to be the most important part of the body because “everything happens there” and that the eyes are¬†the windows to the soul. Brought together with other seemingly random words and symbols Davids paintings provide a unique and glorious vision of our world.
