David Adshade

Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 304
David’s growing career has spanned over two decades. Although an award winning graphic designer and art director by trade, David’s real passion lies in the fine arts. Among many creative interests and endeavours, mediums such as watercolour, charcoal, sculpture and even some metal work have been explored with great results. But a restlessness ensued. A gradual shift in focus and desire over the past
several years has brought David into the realm of Industrial Abstraction. This approach involves the exploration of metal based paints with applied reactive solutions combined with traditional art materials.
This leaves a truly stunning eff ect, both industrial looking yet aesthetically pleasing to the senses. Unlike graphic design, where projects are usually deadline driven and executed with meticulous detail, this
new direction off ers the freedom of pure expression, unbridled by any outside infl uences except of course, by his natural world setting and limitless imagination.
