DAVID D'AGUIAR ART
Big, bold colourful canvases best describe my art. Not a formally trained Artist, I've created a style that is uniquely mine. My vibrant colour is achieved by layering paint, in most cases, just primary colour with a little mixing to add tones - layer on layer. The result is strong, warm colours that everyone seems to love.
Subject matter is also important. Painting in Canada, while visually appealing, was in hindsight very restricting in light and colour. Moving to Australia and more so to Queensland I was able to unleash my love of colour and the kind of paintings I love to paint. Beautiful, warm, peaceful worlds, where the viewer can enter into and put themselves in the painting. Whether it's the hammock on a lovely foreshore between two palm trees, or a beachside verandah or a lounge chair under a shady pandanus, I just want people to feel at "home" with the painting.
COMMISSION A PAINTING
Commissioning me to do you a painting is the best way to get exactly what you want. It can be a photo of a favourite holiday spot, old house, car, caravan.... it's endless. Or can't decide?! I can send you some pictures of my past works and you can choose from there - just get in touch and we can work out the details together.
