David Pilgrim (ROI) was born in 1975 and is an artist with strong interests in oil and acrylic painting. He enjoys working with a diverse range of subject matter and materials in order to maintain a freshness and vitality in his paintings and drawings.
Ideas are sparked on location with drawings or paint sketches which can have the potential to be developed into more resolved pieces back in the studio. Sometimes there's little more to say beyond the original statement and the work needs no further development. This approach has enabled David to develop his observational and technical skills whilst encouraging a greater connection and understanding of the subject.
The energy that comes from the original moment is an increasing important element in his work. Location work can be intensive (especially when it's cold or windy!) but immensely rewarding and challenging.
