David Downton

Artist David Downton can paint an amazing portrait of a glamorous figure in, what looks like, one brush stroke. He has the amazing ability to create a piece that looks effortless. During Downton’s career, he has worked on a wide variety of projects ranging from advertising and packaging to illustrating fiction, cook books and, occasionally dabbling in fashion. In 1996, the Financial Times commissioned him to draw at the couture shows and since then, he has become known principally as a fashion illustrator. His commercial client list includes: Tiffany & Co., Bloomingdales, Barney’s, Harrods, Top Shop, Chanel, Dior, L’Oreal, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, V Magazine and the V&A Museum to name a few. In 1998, he began working on a portfolio of portraits (from life) of some of the world’s most beautiful women, including Erin O’Connor, Paloma Picasso, Catherine Deneuve, Linda Evangelista, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Iman and Dita Von Teese.
