Posted by Steve Emecz on

There are lots of offers on books, art prints and merchandise on our Art Of Sherlock Holmes Page.

David Teal is a figurative artist whose work emphasizes color, shape, and the use of space to suggest images and ideas. David is a painter who also works in mixed media and three-dimensional forms. He draws inspiration for his paintings from old family photos and reinterprets those images to reflect on today’s world. Street scenes and news footage prompt mixed media and sculptural projects.

David Teal’s artistic influences range from contemporary realists Hockney, Katz, and Fischl to the exuberant colors, patterns, and lines of Matisse. Teal’s work has been chosen for exhibitions in the Northeast and in South Florida by curators from prestigious museums and galleries including the Guggenheim, the Whitney, the Museum of Modern Art, Steven Harvey Fine Arts Projects, and the Frederic Snitzer Gallery.

During his tenure at the Yale School of Art, Robert Storr chose three of David’s paintings for an exhibit. Dean Storr awarded these works honorable mention. Other influential jurors including Carter Foster, Marshall Price, Paulina Pobocha, Lauren Hinkson, and Rujeko Hockley have selected David Teal’s paintings for various shows. David Teal resides in South Florida, between the beach and the swamp.

For The Art of Sherlock Holmes David used a similar style to these examples to interpret his Holmes story from Denis Smith - here is the painting that features in the book as an authenticated print from The Conan Doyle Estate.

The Art of Sherlock Holmes West Palm Beach Edition is available from Amazon USA ,  Barnes and Noble , Amazon UK   and Book Depository (free worldwide shipping) - and in other formats: Kindle.
