David Kelavey is an impressionist painter working in oils. He paints figurative landscapes, using energetic brushwork and often bold composition choices. David draws inspiration from the world around him, be it on a dramatic mountain summit or behind the wheel of his car at a suburban stop light.
When seen from a distance his work can often appear to be photo-realistic, but the viewer soon finds this to be an illusion as they draw closer. David’s paintings are not simple renderings, but multi-faceted interpretations that require the viewer to look deeper.
David’s work reflects the enthusiasm, optimism and pragmatism with which he approaches his art. He hopes his paintings enable the viewer to enhance, in some small way, their outlook on the world around them.
David is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA) and the Lakeshore Association of Artists. He is also a member of theBeaconsfield Artists’ Association.
His work can be seen at Viva Vida Art Gallery in Pointe-Claire, Québec.
