A hyperrealistic close-up view of an eye surrounded by vibrant red and yellow flowers in full bloom. "The viewer cannot know if the model is a man or woman, a boy or girl," says artist David Shepherd. "Regardless all people are beautiful. Our eyes are a window to our souls, it's what is within us that's important. As humanity becomes more educated, more people will use knowledge to deduce that no one is evil. Our biology is affected by our genetics and environment and for better or worse all of our actions are a bi-product of biology. This unites humanity by eliminating discrimination based on appearance or even actions."

Canadian artist David Shepherd fuses techniques from both old and modern masters to create contemporary interpretations of the human form. While offering strong nods to pop art and cubism, the work remains grounded by David’s training in 19th Century academic realism. Combining discrete techniques within a single tableau is initially jarring to the viewer, creating an unexpected visual complexity in the work and demonstrating the artist’s breadth of skills. “I think in the future we will be much more interested in works of art that show a mastery of multiple styles,” says David. Each artwork effectually suggests the surreal nature of human existence within a convoluted modern society.
