Studio Visit: Harold David

THE ART EDIT TEAM TAKES A LOOK INSIDE THE STUDIO

My studio is in my backyard, which is convenient as I normally start painting at 3am. As the sun rises the light comes in from three sides, softly without any harsh highlights. It’s my place of solitude – when my twin boys aren’t running amok. It’s filled with paint, rolls of unused canvas, paintings ready to be stretched and framed, my photo of Bob Hawke and a mid-century Fler Modular couch covered in paint. It’s raw and very full, just as I like it.

HAROLD DAVID STARTED PAINTING AT THE AGE OF 12 USING HIS MOTHER’S MAKEUP AND NAIL POLISH. TODAY HIS PAINTINGS ARE A CROSS BETWEEN PAINTING AND PHOTOGRAPHY AND ARE FOCUSED ON COMPOSITION, GRADIENT, AND PALETTE.
