TOWERS

TOWERS

When David was a child, around 7 years old, he recalls coming across the painting "The (Little) Tower Of Babel" by Pieter Bruegel the elder in one of his mother's and father's books. He refers to this as his first conscious emotional reaction to a piece of art. The  mood and form of the tower has haunted his imagination for decades.

He began his own interpretations of the subject in 2007, nearly 30 years after his first encounter with infamous image.

He has created hundreds of works of art in tribute to the tower including paintings, drawings, large scale installations, one of a kind articles of clothing and video.
