David Studwell brings the golden age of the swinging sixties and seventies back to life with his eclectic range of pop art prints. He recreates images of past icons from these exciting and revolutionary decades such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Bob Dylan. Generating a strong sense of nostalgia, Studwell reinvents these classic and timeless images through an evolved creative process that incorporates bold and vivid colours, highlighting his influences of Pop Art, popular culture and cult movies.
Having been an artist for over 20 years, Studwell learnt the skills of his craft at the prestigious Central St Martins, and has used the advancement in technology to his advantage to add more sophistication and dynamic layers to his work. “It’s the technology that enables me to bring those images from the bygone eras into the present.”
Studwell’s work has been collected by high profile clients such as Kate Moss and Nile Rogers, and has featured in GQ, Elle, World of Interiors magazines and more. He has exhibited at numerous galleries in London as well as San Francisco.
