David Platford — Land Escapes
Posted on April 21, 2015
David Platford fuses nature and technology in his mixed-aesthetic paintings.
The innovative fusion of nature and technology is my expression of the world today. At the Academy of Art University I studied the traditional and contemporary oil painting techniques and principles of Realism, Pop-Art, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, Graphic Design, Street Art, and Eastern Aesthetics. Ultimately I went my own direction, developing a unique poetic visual language with paint. My inspiration comes from traveling to sacred places around the world, plein-air painting and observing the interaction of contrasting elements.
