British photographer David Scheinmann has moved from being an award winning cutting-edge commercial photographer into a contemporary artist. His figurative and explosively colourful work explores issues of cultural identity and popular iconography, and sits alongside both abstract work and classic black and white photography.
In 2017 he had a solo exhibition at the Rosenfeld Porcini Gallery, London, on the theme of hereditary cancer. David’s most recent creative venture is a collaborative mixed media and photography series entitled Adores & Adorned with artist Harvey B-Brown.
In 2018, work from the Adored and Adorned series went under the hammer of Simon de Pury for the Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas, Christie’s London for the Terence Higgins Trust, and Sotheby’s London for Women for Women, raising several tens of thousands of pounds for these charities.
His early work is now held in the permanent collection of the National Galleries of Scotland.
