Dave Coburn is a South African artist based in Hermanus in the Western Cape, South Africa. As well as being an artist and illustrator, he has worked in the graphic design industry for twenty five years.
“I have always had a passion for the great South African landscape and have gathered images on numerous road trips which I interpret to capture the beauty and tranquillity of our beautiful country. Having recently relocated to Hermanus from Durban, I have found myself immersed in a contemporary approach to underwater sea-life. As predominantly land based souls we admire the beauty of the ocean from the shoreline; underneath is a world unknown to most. Due to the threat to our oceans and coastline I embrace the beauty of beneath and attempt to retain an awareness of the unseen.”
Dave works predominantly in oils on large format canvases but does occasionally produce smaller paintings as well.
