Join Art Mecca of Charleston on Friday, March 20th from 5:00-8:00pm for their Monthly Artist Reception featuring illustrator and painter, David Gildersleeve.
David Gildersleeve began his long and illustrious art career while growing up in Texas. Comic books sparked his interest in art and became his earliest teachers - Batman being a favorite.
While David remains committed to the world of comics (he is currently working on self publishing his own series), he also enjoys painting. He paints subjects that invade his subconscious, using a wonky style to help bring these images to life. Using textures and a selective palette, David creates a definite mood in his work that most people refer to as whimsical.
Pictured here is his painting "Red Carnation" done in acrylic and ink on canvas.
