David Febland is a London artist who has focused his research on privacy, conflict, and isolation in urban life themes. His paintings are joyful and colorful, but the insidious possibility emerges that reality depicted offers moments of “parallel truth” or situations to which the artist would have witnessed spying on his subjects. We immediately come up with The Truman Show, especially thinking about the apparent calm and harmony that characterizes scenes of his works, a lightness that hides more insidious truths.
Unlike the famous film, characters of David wander alone in the city, which looks like a deserted and abandoned the place, which is not lacking in poetry: each image also represents a moment of contemplation and reflection, where emotions and states of mind come out the soul of the mysterious city inhabitants.
