David Irvine first began The Gnarled Branch in 2004. Prior to this (which was immediately after graduating Sheridan College in the early 1990's) the business had different names and was almost solely graphic design and illustration based.
Irvine wanted to venture more into a fine arts venture and refocused his work back to painting, crafts and sculpting. He still does commercial art -mainly illustration- but the fine art fills most of his time and is his strongest passion.
There is an ever growing command for Irvine's work from both galleries and collectors from around the world. His work as inspired artists both young and old from Canada to the United States to as far away as Qatar, where a class of budding artists tried their hand at redirecting unwanted paintings.
This display showcases his darker works and passion for his favourite time of year- Hallowe'en. Enjoy!
