David Blackwood

David Blackwood

David Blackwood’s etchings are rooted in an oral narrative tradition based on the social values of Newfoundland. Each image illustrates a specific story and conveys his strong connection to the Newfoundland landscape and people. His contrasting use of colour and refined etching technique make David Blackwood’s art unique and visually powerful.
