David Servan-Schreiber's portrait

Artist David Aiu Servan Schreiber uses his art to inspire us to becoming more sustainable.
He uses cement in his art to represent the overload of man-made materials in our environment. He then contrasts these materials with natural metals (such as gold), to highlight how beautiful, strong and powerful nature can be

 

INSPIRATION

Plus icon

Using his works as a mean to do so, the artist wishes for us to rebuild a stronger emotional connection with our planet. While most religions base themselves upon an uncertain future, the artist wants you to focus on the present moments that we would wish to preserve and pass on to the next generation like a series of natural materials and the beauty of our environment.

 

VISION

Plus icon

The artist is concerned that we are not looking after our ‘host’, the planet, well enough. His works are here to draw awareness to this issue: from the cement he uses for his planets which are a direct reminder of how much cement we covered the earth with to the name of his latest series, Raoni, after the living symbol of the fight for the preservation of the Amazon rainforest. The imprint of each material he uses in his art is for you, the viewer, to be drawn in and later challenged on your direct responsibility towards looking after our planet earth. The gold leaf is what earth does most beautifully, without any chemistry, and is here to highlight how beautiful and powerful our environment is.While we may look upon the environmental issue as an abstract concept and something too big to relate personally with, the artist makes sincere and powerful artworks carrying this meaningful idea to engage each of us, and make us believe in the necessity to act towards more sustainable measures. Through his art, David is able to transform this personal belief to a universal cause.

 

PAST PROJECTS

David has exhibited internationally - New York, London and Paris and in the most prestigious spaces: Sotheby’s, Frieze Art Fair and others.
Before embarking on the ‘planet’ series, David completed a series entitled ‘alphabet’. Based on the visual and graphical interpretation of the alphabet rather than an ordering of its letters, the works present his own personal expression of language and calligraphy.

 

CURRENT PROJECTS

David is currently working on the expansion and extension of his ‘planet’ series.

 

FUTURE PROJECTS

Plus icon

Upcoming projects concentrate on the wider issues covered by the ‘planet’ series. These include the consideration and impact on the attitude of the general public regarding religion and climate change. A new partnering of concepts that encourages a progressive, forward-thinking perspective and call to action.
