Over the past 2 years I have worked on many major works, ones that I love to experiment and push my boundaries on. Many of these were from things that impressed me in San Francisco, and one from South Beach, Florida. The last 6 months this image I took at a church in Mont Luis, France has been a work of love. There is a beautiful stained glass window, depicting the bombing of the germans of Mont Luis in 1944, as it was the head of the French Resistance during the war. The windows of the church were shattered, and re done in the early 1950’s as were so many of the church windows in the Loire Valley. The depiction of worship in the church, the central image of Mary and the french countryside are all really romantic and depict a dedication to the family of God.
My journey of finding the church whilst cycling 5 days through the Loire Valley with my ex wife and daughter was truely amazing. This piece I have added lights, dots, neon and movement to in my own inspired way to create the centre piece for my upcoming exhibition, which opens tomorrow in Casuarina Convention Centre 2487.

My upcoming exhibition from May 22 -25, 2013 at Casuarina Convention Centre, 1 Barclay Drive, Casuarina 2487, NSW Australia, will feature my current works, David’s Digitally Remastered Realities
This piece is a blend of a scene from Canon Street in Central London and a graffiti art scene from Flinders Lane in Melbourne. The style and brightness of the recreated reality is my imagination, bright strong bold and renewed . .David Smouha.
Looking to St Paul’s, Viewed from the members area in the TATE Modern across the Thames. A cool, rendered image layered with dots and distorted grids. This view inspires me each time I visit London, David Smouha.
Here’s an image that probably is more in keeping with the area of the exhibition and where I live, just south of Australia’s Gold Coast. This artwork combines 3 beach scenes, some 3D images of those scenes and special effects dots and warped grids to create a tale of the beaches and high density buildings found along the beach areas on part of the coast. Principally it is Broadbeach (Qld), Cabarita Beach (NSW) and overlays of paint and shapes to create an image of some of the iconic draw cards of the area. Printed on high gloss canvas & framed in white shadow-line timber, measuring 1.6 metres x .9 metre and selling for $1800 AUD.
