About Photographer

Emerging British photographic artist, David Scheinmann has evolved form an award winning creative cutting edge commercial photographer of the 80’s and 90’s into an artist who’s work now explores issues of cultural identity through the commercial iconography to which he formerly contributed with imagery consumed by mass audiences on billboards, CD covers, theatre and movie posters. His series work looks at comic book heros, pop art, pornography performance and advertising. A solo exhibition of Scheinmann’s work curated by Centro Andaluz de la fotografia toured in Spain. His work has hung in the National Portrait Gallery London and and his work was show cased at Royal Dublin Society Collective Contemporary Art in 2010. Inspired by the recent visual explosion in Contemporary Chinese and Asian art Scheinmann’s latest series on Asian Movie Icons is richly rendered in mixed media gyclee and silkscreen hybrid prints and was shown at the Michael Hoppen Gallery at the Hong Kong Art Fair in 2012.
