Meet David Mew

David is an American artist working with generative and algorithmic art techniques to create his Geo-Surrealistic landscapes. His dream-like, metaphysical worlds reflect his transformative journey towards well-being, ongoing search for inner peace, and good intentions; and explore themes such as personal growth, self-discovery, positive energy, interconnectedness, and social harmony. Individual growth contributes to collective progress. Dreams and contemplative practices, such as yoga and meditation, play a central role in shaping the spiritual essence and ethereal aesthetic of his creations that transcend conventional reality. David’s artwork is printed on photographic paper and acrylic facemounted, directly on aluminum and other metals, and built as light boxes. Many of his pieces are titled after feelings, values, aspirations, and personal mantras.

Connected to the Biomorphism and Techspressionism artistic movements, David’s landscapes feature cellular shapes and biomorphic forms digitally infused with an intricate geometric and curvilinear aestheticDavid's creative process begins with shapes, forms, and motifs he digitally created, and showcases a progression that involves playing with scale and repetition with the application of generative and algorithmic art techniques. 

The visual language of Geo-Surrealistic landscapes is deeply rooted in geometry, biological forms, patterns, and color theory. There is an intrinsic beauty underlying the simplicity and order of geometric relationships. Abstracted elements of sacred geometry, labyrinths, and mandalas appear in most of David's work. Within Geo-Surrealistic landscapes one can observe a cellular vitality that imparts a sense of life. The pulsating biomorphic energy felt in each composition mirrors the vibrancy of personal growth. Each cell represents a unique facet of the transformative journey, and their interconnectedness serves a visual metaphor for the holistic approach to well-being. The interplay of mind, body, and spirit is central in the narrative of self-discovery. As someone who is adept at recognizing both physical and intangible patterns in his life, David is interested in using patterns to imbue wonder and meaning into his work, transcending the physical and delving into the metaphysical.  The subtle alterations in geometric elements and shifts in colors, whether noticed incrementally or going unnoticed, mirror the wide range of ways we perceive change. His interest in incremental change, symbolized within aperiodic patterns, reflects an understanding of how meaningful transformations occur in both art and life. The thematic emphasis on recognizing, understanding, and breaking patterns as a means of making sense of the world aligns with the broader concept that change is possible through disrupting existing structures. This philosophy extends beyond the physical realm, touching on the dynamics of breaking patterns and unconscious habits to enable change within. Psychedelic colors, reminiscent of the hues observed in moments of profound introspection and higher levels of consciousness, are central to resonating with the viewer's emotions and experiences.

As an artist, David finds purpose in encapsulating the intricacies of his personal journey in physical form, and meaning as viewers connect with the work. Viewers are invited to reflect on their own introspective journeys and find connection to the transcendent worlds found in Geo-Surrealistic landscapes.
