David Fortune. Artist.

Born 1978 Wicklow, Ireland. Lives and works in Dublin, Ireland. Studied Painting at Limerick School of Art and Design. The land and the person are common themes in the work. Colour has always been at the forefront. A juxtaposition of reality and ordinariness within the subject matter, against the sensuousness of the paint. The work is often mixed media, combining oils, acrylic, spray paint, charcoal.
