About David

In 1991, David began his illustration career working mostly with book publishers in New York City in which he completed over one hundred covers in a span of over ten years. Also, David’s work graced the cover of numerous prominent magazines, including TIME. He also painted the portrait of J.P. Morgan for the cover of Cigar Aficionado, as well as a family portrait of the Rothschild family and the Chateau Latour Winery for the covers of Wine Spectator magazines. These paintings are now part of the company’s permanent collection.

Bowers’ illustrations received numerous awards including three Joseph Morgan Henniger Awards, ‘Best of Show” from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles along with two Patrick Nagel awards. These awards recognized David with the best, published illustration of the year. Also, David received 9 other medals from that organization. David also has received numerous medals and Merit awards from the Society of Illustrators in New York, Spectrum’s Best of Fantastic Art and Communication Arts Magazine.

Viewers are initially drawn in by the smooth meticulous technique. But after closer inspection, they can see there is much more than just impeccable technique. There is a small, sometimes weird and unusual world that has been created. This type of creation gives the viewers a rare insight into the depths of Bowers’ talent. One of his private collectors, once stated, ‘One would be hard pressed to find an artist with greater depth, skill and imagination than David Bowers. It is obvious that Bowers marches to his own drummer, much like the artists he admires.”
