David Ball’s Otherworldly Mixed-Media Scenes

by Andy SmithPosted on


The strange worlds of David Ball are forged with acrylic paint, colored pencil, and collaged materials. The artist’s pieces have been described as “otherworldly dreamscapes, composed through the harvesting of an endless trove of carefully selected images.” With this varied blend of materials, there’s both an organic (and animalistic) and mechanical quality to these creatures.

“His interests range from observed relationship dynamics and social commentary to more introverted personal works, all in surreal, otherworldly landscapes driven by character and narrative,” a past statement says. “David creates both fine art and illustration works with the help of his talkative cat, Cho Cho and lots and lots of coffee.”
