David Newton is Tottenham native, Illustrator and Printmaker, working in Publishing by day and screen printing by night.
His imagery celebrates his biggest inspiration - books. Ones read or not yet written. The text is usually the initial inspiration and then remains as an extension of the print.
He ‘builds’ all his images by hand - with no computers used at all! - cutting and scribbling with many types of real pens and pencils; montaging and taping to tracing paper to then expose directly to a screen to screen print.
His artwork celebrates colour and shape: "The more clashing colours the merrier!" Many of his screen prints are hand finished with gold and silver foil accents.
