David Irvine will be at Art-O-Con!!!

DI - 01Ladies & Gentlemen we have the extreme honor of having the unbelievably talented David Irvine from The Gnarled Branch at our show as a guest artist!!!!

David has been refining and pushing the boundaries of “redirected” art with a unique and original spin. David’s quirky and very popular style is created by repurposing unwanted prints or original art from thrift stores or found at yard sales and painted upon using his own style of creativity. Seemingly random subject matter including pop cultural references, political comment, the camp and the absurd, often combining all these elements to create truly original art pieces.

David as well does his own ‘entire’ work, which dips into the pop art and dark surreal themes.

Over the years David’s work has gone viral multiple times thanks to social media websites and personal celebrity endorsements like George Takei.
A direct result of this coverage has been an array of collectors from Australia, Europe, Japan and the United States, Just to name a few.

Prints and other merchandise of Irvine’s work is available for purchase on Redbubble http://www.redbubble.com/people/gnarledbranch and originals can be viewed on Etsyhttps://www.etsy.com/ca/people/TheGnarledBranch as well as his personal website www.gnarledbranch.com

We are humbled to Have David at Art-O-Con. Help me give him a big welcome!
