David Emmanuel Noel is a British born artist, designer and illustrator based in London and New York. He has exhibited widely in solo and group shows in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States. Much of his work embodies his personal encounters as well as the exposure to history, cultures and experiences of peoples particularly from the African diaspora. Moreover, his work is also influenced by politics, societal trends and his love of Jazz music.
David is interested in some form of cultural representation, yet equally attracted to the subjective aspect of painting — in the application of paint and the balance of colour, scale, line and movement. He brings a subtle and sophisticated feel to his paintings through a unique balance of colour, composition and texture. He has worked with charities and organisations such as the ACLT, NSPCC, UK health service agencies, the London Boroughs of Ealing and Lambeth, The New York Mayor’s Office and CAMBA- a New York based agency.
