DAVID SHEVLINO SET
David Shevlino was born in Jersey City, NJ in 1962. A graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania, he also studied at the Art Students’ League in New York. Growing up near NYC, Shevlino was exposed to art as a teenager.
He began making trips to art museums at age 15 and developed a love of traditional figurative painting. His early work was very traditional and classically inspired. However, after many years
of experimenting, Shevlino began exploring a looser paint application which straddles the line between representational painting and abstraction.
This “in between” area is where the painter feels most comfortable and best able to express his artistic voice. His paintings are characterized by broad brushstrokes, a sensuous application of paint and an obvious feel for tonal harmonies. At the same time, the artist demonstrates a firm sense of control, tightening up the composition through his deft modeling of the human form. Shevlino has exhibited work nationally in both solo and group exhibits over the past two decades and currently lives in Wake Forest, NC.
“I’ve used the Ivory series for several years now and the bristles hold their shape longer than just about any brush I’ve used, which is important to me. I like using the curved flats and regular flats as a set because they compliment each other so well.’’
David and Rosemary worked together to design the Ivory Long Flat ‘Curved Edge’ brushes. “I wanted a brush that has the feel of a flat for laying in swathes of paint, but with slightly tapered fibers for getting a softer edge, the way you would with a filbert.” David Shevlino
