The Wings – 2018
- Image Size: 12in x 12in
A colourful painting by artist David Downes, as part of our IN:SIGHT 2018 collection.
David paints his colourful urbanscapes mainly from memory, using observation and imagination to add artistic flair.
The artist was diagnosed with high-functioning autism at the age of 32 and was the subject of a 2000 book by Sheila Paine, titled Artists Emerging. Now living in Newport Beach in California, he is inspired by the road signs and infrastructure around him.
David says: “I love and loathe the massive freeways – the flyovers are like ugly sculptures, yet are part of the American dream and identity.”
