David Roupell, Byron Bay Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement As one of London's emerging young 'psychedelic' artists in the late 60's, I designed images for posters, record covers, furniture, and walls. A celebrated example of his art was the main wall at Francoise nightclub in The Kings Rd, Chelsea, one of swinging London's most popular haunts. Have recently created a modern portfolio and sold works in London, USA and Australia. Was asked to join the Saatchi gallery after they saw my website. Currently have collections in Japan, America, Australia and Europe and am once again gathering a reputation for the 'crisp clean execution of the work and the brilliant uplifting colours'.
For me these images are a celebration of the visionary spirit of the 60s, which for some were all about exploration, search and mystery of the great universe inside and outside us. I see no reason to discontinue the voyage in the 21st Century, in fact one could almost say the alarming nature of humanity's current unrest demands it. I hope the intrigue and fascination which accompanied the creation of these works is enjoyed by those who visit them.
This a collection of artworks I created between 2004 and 2006. It was an obsessive pleasure. I hope you enjoy the images as much I did. I used to use poster paints and acrylics but when I discovered the digital palette that is photoshop I got very busy again. It may be digital art, but when using the basic tools available a picture can take just as long to create as it did with brush and paint!
