David Surman is a London-based artist with a focus on painting and drawing. He has earned a global reputation for his figurative artworks, which intricately weaves together animal, plant, and human forms to celebrate their vitality.
Surman explores the projection of human experiences onto the natural world. He integrates elements of the pathetic fallacy and cartoon aesthetics. Through his art, animal forms are skilfully infused with sincerity, irony, liveliness, and profound psychological undertones. This simultaneously challenges established ideas of what's valuable and tasteful in both art and our understanding of nature. With a masterful blend of humor, tenderness, and pessimism, he captures the shared vulnerability of life on our rapidly changing world.
