David Fox is a self-taught artist who has been drawing and painting most of his life. He paints oils and watercolors and also does pen and ink sketches. His subject matter includes children by the sea, rowers and Philadelphia scenes, including the Art Museum, the Waterworks, and Boat House Row. He usually paints in his studio from photographs.
In 1965, Fox served in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia, Africa. His experience in Ethiopia has served as a life long source of inspiration for figure studies and landscapes.
Fox currently exhibits at the Carol Schwartz Gallery in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania and Sweet Mabel Gallery in Narberth, Pennsylvania. He has also shown his work at the Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Annual, the American College, and the Cape May Promenade Art Show. He painted a commissioned mural for the American Red Cross and has done commissioned paintings for Holiday Inn Airport, U.S. Health Care Headquarters and U.S. Health Care Service Administrations Buildings, and Bell of Pennsylvania Corporate Offices.
Fox, who works by day as an architect, is also well known for his three dimensional views of major American cities. These four-color posters include Boston, Chicago, Lower Manhattan, New Orleans, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Washington D.C. His Aerial view of Lower Manhattan has been made into a puzzle and ski poles.
Fox currently lives in Narberth, Pennsylvania with his family. (Drawing of the artist, David Fox, by Nikolai Fox)
