Peter Daavid is an Australian artist based in Castlemaine in central Victoria with a focus on abstract painting, pattern and colour. Since moving to Australia from New Zealand almost two decades ago, Peter has been creating original artwork, exhibiting in solo and group shows and selling on a commission basis since 2006.
As with life, his work has evolved and he is currently creating original canvas art and limited-edition cushion covers inspired by memories, travel experiences, colour, textiles and expression.
For Peter Daavid, it is important viewers and customers know the story behind each creation, so each collection comes accompanied by its background story. Whether a vase found in an antiques store in Hobart or floor tiles in Rome, each piece comes complete with a unique story and a certificate of authenticity.
As Peter explains:
"My previous work was large scale and I wanted to focus on small canvases and cushions as an easy and affordable way to update the look of your favourite room. I wanted to provide a simple design solution that adds seasonal flair that is fun, interesting and completely unique.
Especially the cushions! I wanted to translate my designs onto fabric so people could have original art for their furniture. Think of them as limited edition art prints that are exclusive but not elusive and not boring."
Peter Daavid canvas art is created by Peter, using various techniques from abstract painting, screen printing and transfer printing. Each artwork is handcrafted and unique.
Peter Daavid cushion covers are artisan, designed in Castlemaine, Australia, 100% cotton and created from a Fair Trade supply chain. No nasty mass-produced products here.
