David MacDowell studio shot
David MacDowell is a self-taught artist living in Virginia. He incorporates media culture, and social themes into brilliant and controversial satirical paintings. Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, MacDowell is not afraid of tapping into the dark side of American media worship. He tops off celebrity renderings sprinkled with crying babies, candy colored nightmares, and a hilariously acidic sense of humor. Some have called his work a virtual “Disneyland on acid”. By bravely peeling away the veneer of pop culture, he validates the abused underbelly of society with x-ray glasses. With an ever-expanding list of international clientele, MacDowell’s work can be found in Atlanta, California, Florida and New York.
MacDowell has shown with Ad Hoc Art, The Alcove Gallery, Compound Gallery, Gallery 1988, Harold Golen Gallery, Last Rites Gallery, The Gallery at The Alternative Café and The Gallery at East Atlanta Tattoo.
