About the Artist: “It was the endangered species in the Caribbean such as the St. Vincent parrot that drew David into wildfowl carving ... As a second generation native of the Caribbean island of Trinidad, David knew immediately that this was something he had to do. Not only for his own fulfillment but also as an expression of his concern of the destruction of the Caribbean island rain forest and the threat to the hundreds of unique species of birds and animals that it supports. As one of two wildfowl carvers in the Caribbean and the only one in Trinidad, the past years have seen him create many carvings including birds of prey. He names Floyd Scholz as one of his biggest influences, having taken seminars at Scholz's Vermont Raptor Academy. David says "The way Floyd structures his classes and his bold approach to carving really appeals to me." He also identifies Pat Godin, Larry Barth Todd Wohlt, Bob Guge, Ernie Muehlmatt, John Sharp as well as some of the younger carvers, as those whose work provides him with tremendous inspiration.”Read more: http://caribbeanwings.net/profile.html
About the Gallery: “Over the years the 101 Art Gallery has developed a reputation in dealing in an area of art in Trinidad that is specialized – we represent a number of Private and Corporate Collectors who have works dating from Cazabon (1813-1888) to Chang, Atteck, Codallo, Greenidge, Stollmeyer, Hingwan, Boodhoo et al. We are able to source works by these Trinidad Masters and hold sales of works, called “Precious Paintings from Private Collections” – a means of the Collectors to capitalize on their investments, and a chance for new Collectors to acquire valuable investment quality paintings.” Read more: http://101artgallery.com/aboutus.html
