Pop surrealist extraodinaire David MacDowell prepares to return to Los Angeles on April 30th

David MacDowell 'Abide' - 30x40 - acrylic on canvas

Working primarily with acrylics on canvas, David 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.
