About David Shillinglaw:
David Shillinglaw is a Margate-based artist who has made a name for himself with his distinctive blend of street art and fine art. His work is often characterised by its bold colours, intricate patterns and whimsical imagery.
His art explores themes of identity and the human condition, be it a complex anatomical diagram or a simple stick figure. Drawing on ideas from ancient mythology and pop culture, the artist creates a dialogue between the historical and the contemporary. Shillinglaw often paints directly onto found objects, creating an open relationship between himself and his changing environment.
Shillinglaw made his debut in Germany at heliumcowboy, in 2015, when the artist came to Hamburg for his first solo show in Germany. The show was titled Remote Control. Now, 8 years later, the artist finally comes back and will present new works with his new exhibition "Psychogeography", which deals with the concept of psychogeography.
