“You are my sunshine” is the latest release from a group of ten works specifically imagined by David for the medium of print creating extremely unique editions.

Throughout his career David always worked on smaller more accessible paintings as a way to move through ideas quickly and at this point in his life he felt the urgency to create while he still could.

You are my sunshine is a wonderful example of Dave Spillers bold text work incorporating well known pop lyrics, to convey a message of love. In this piece David covered his original painted text with acetates on to which he added the extra lyrics, text and lines, building up the composition and creating a basis for the screens used to create this print.

Each print is signed by his Moira and son Xavier and comes with a full certificate of authenticity.

It was a pleasure working with David to bring his prints to life, and it’s a joy to continue to give life to these works in collaboration with Moira and Xavier.


The Artist

David Spiller

David Spiller was a contemporary British painter best known for his graphic, flattened depictions of cartoon characters. Spiller’s art is a blend of styles, mixing the hard-hitting immediacy of Pop art – its bright colours, punchy texts and clean lines – with a deceptively simple expressionism. To these striking images, he has added another layer of intuitive freehand texts that include lines from his favourite songs (by the Beatles, Bob Dylan and other recognisable pop numbers that have seeped into his consciousness). Simultaneously fun and sincere, his work captures the imagination of adults and children alike. In his work, Spiller brings together a combination of Pop Art influences with the more painterly Art Brut techniques of artists such as Jean Dubuffet.
