These original hand-embellished pieces are limited to 30 of each edition. Encapsulating positivity, support, and resilience through combining aspects of my original abstract paintings and a very well-known bear. The characters of Winnie the Pooh have been attributed to representing different mental health conditions, these amazing characters show that everyone deserves love from both themselves and others. My paintings are how I escape so I know how important looking after YOU, is. After all, we are all very special.
These pieces use modern digital art and hand-painted details creating a unique limited edition artwork. Each piece has a digitally drawn character overlayed on top of a picture of one of my original abstract paintings. The scene is then digitally created and printed onto 280gsm soft cotton paper. Finally, time is taken to carefully add hand-painted details to each print. The finished piece is numbered and signed and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
A UK-based artist David Kirkman was born in 1985 and was introduced to painting at a young age by his late grandad a local artist himself, who encouraged him to try different mediums and styles. Working primarily with acrylics, he creates big, bold, colourful and contrasting paintings and mixed media prints. Through acknowledging and managing his own mental health he started abstract painting, finding the ability to create whilst being in the present not only helped therapeutically but also allows David to create the pieces he is so well known for today. His work promotes wellness, positivity, and joy. David is an exciting emerging artist who shows his work in galleries, exhibitions and Art fairs across the UK, online and has also been featured in publications and zines such as, Collect Art, Cista Art and Artist Talk Magazine.
