The combination of different illustrative techniques is what defines this British artist´s works. He connects photography and painting, edits photography and collages in Photoshop and mixes different media.
David McConochie is a freelance illustrator and artist from England. His creations are characterised by their diversity. With great joy he experiments with different genres, using graphic design techniques, photography, illustration and Photoshop while letting his sense and intuition for the right medium guide his art. According to David, even the most different illustrative techniques don´t cancel each other out.
American artist Robert Rauschenberg acts as a big influence to David´s pieces. He himself links various different disciplines in his works and counts as a trailblazer for the Pop Art genre. For his photo montages and collages David also draws his inspiration from the creations of Polish illustrator Andrzej Klimowski and British artist Dave McKean.
Among his clients are the BBC, Random House and Oxford University Press. David studied graphic design at Teesside University and Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London and subsequently moved into illustrating and book illustrations. He won the V&A Illustration Awards 2016 and the House of Illustration/Folio Society 2015 book illustration, and in 2016 became Moira Gemmill Illustrator of the Year. David McConochie lives and works in London.
