About David Tracey
There are no upcoming events
I am an artist based in Sydney, Australia.
I like to create beautiful art in a digital realism style where painting technique creates the look of the modern world as we now perceive it through digital techniques.
With the advent of computer graphics, I moved on to creating realistic animated
content commercially, again specializing in environments and surface textures.
I learnt so much from the modern disciplines (film work, computer graphics, photography) and found it all is relevant when painting. I use these modern elements to lift the image, to meet the expectations of the modern eye. Even flares, artifacts and scattering all work beautifully in oil to create a visually satisfying piece that is still clearly handmade, wrought by human creativity.
Artists I admire are Elizabeth Vigee Le Brun, William Bouguereau and Marcel Marlier; masters in the realistic style and technique they used in creating such believable skin tones.
