Looking through David MacDowell's selected portfolio is like taking a portal into an alternative, animated, celebrity-mocking planet that connects some of pop culture's most disparate (and finest) moments.

David MacDowell is a self-taught Chesapeake, Virginia-based artist who specializes in pop surrealism and low-brow art. David MacDowell's unique blend of pop culture criticism and well-detailed acrylic art has helped him gain an international reputation as one of the art world's most unique talents. His work carries a searing sense of humor and a distinctive aesthetic -- his images are brash, colorful, and instantly recognizable.

David MacDowell has had his artwork exhibited at galleries around the world, including the United Kingdom and the US. He has also been commissioned to complete projects for major corporate clients like Random House and Warner Bros.

My favorite David MacDowell illustration is a tie between the Tupac/Biggie 'Angels Pouring Out a 40' illustration and the 'Many Faces of Samuel L. Jackson' one, both are highly detailed, accurate, and nostalgic. A win, win, win.
