David Twose

Although drawn to art early in his childhood, David Twose, the Franco-British artist living in Paris, decided not to pursue his passion for art professionally until 40 (in 2017).

Those studied in art classes, mainly at the iconic art academy La Grande Chaumière in Paris, while pursuing a management career in Marketing for sixteen years at Peugeot.

While early influences included the Fauves, Nabis, and, more recently, David Hockney, his motivation to leap to become a professional artist lies in his unwavering desire to align his inner and outer worlds—congruent to living life as a painter.

He works as a dedicated tightrope walker, seeking the perfect harmony between figuration and abstraction. He creates a world outside space and time, a universe with powerful colors and forms that draws inspiration from the human body, landscapes, and urban landscapes.

Twose reveals the abstraction hiding within reality, to express a world that transcends us, touching the essence of all that surrounds and inhabits us, what he calls conception. His paintings put our imagination to work, bringing us back to our need for contemplation.

Today, Twose works in the international artist residency "59 Rivoli" is located in Paris's heart.
