“I always wanted to be an artist and to be able to use my ideas and creativity in different ways.”
David Munroe was born and grew up in Glasgow, Scotland. “I have been drawing and sketching for as long as I can remember, I was always that kid as school that everyone would come to when they wanted something drawn or painted and i loved anything to do with art then as much as i do now. After finishing my studies in Art I decided that Abstract painting was somewhere I would like to work on and spend time exploring the creative possibilities.”
‘My Abstract Art Series is heavily influenced by nature and the environment and focuses on trying to show the beauty found in the everyday and overlooked world we live in.’
‘My creative process when working on my abstract paintings includes experimenting with unusual materials found in the natural environment and using them to create my Original Abstract Paintings. I research and experiment new ways of manipulating materials often and always try to use unusual approaches and to take a different perspective to my paintings that I hope comes across in the finished pieces.
I am very much influenced by the natural world, the oceans and the atmosphere we live in and try to keep that connection with the art I create by using carefully considered and environmentally friendly materials as much as I possibly can.’
‘Paintings from my Industrial Series are created with a large assortment of materials that i have experimented with over the years and are manipulated using extreme temperatures to create striking and complex paintings that show the raw beauty that exists in the environment from where they were inspired. The Introduction of extreme heat and cold temperatures to manipulate the materials is a brand new technique that I have developed and something that brings very interesting results. It can lead to some of the most striking paintings that I have been able to create so far. Using out of the box approaches to Industrial Art can lead to such unexpected beauty.’
