David Horgan Art

Highbrow Bum

Regular price

Regular price £400.00

"Highbrow Bum" is an original acrylic painting on canvas hand stretched by David.

This piece was inspired by an image of beat generation poet Gregory Corso looking rather dishevelled, yet still manging to channel some sence of erudite authority. Hence the title and graphite scrawled "highbrow bum". 

David likes to tell stories in his work which he expresses through a fast paced style that is emotive, raw and colourful all suffused with a healthy dose of humour.

David builds multiple layers of colour and texture in an unplanned spontaeous manner that he develops into rich figurative scenes sometimes working from imagination and memory and sometimes inspired by found images or people he knows.

The dimensions of this piece are 300mm x 250mm.

Original art is non-returnable.
