David Remfry

 
 



David Remfry’s artistic career spans more than 30 years. A figurative painter born and trained in England and now living in New York, Remfry has a long-established reputation as a draftsman and watercolorist, having had over 50 solo exhibitions in Europe and America including solo exhibitions at P.S.1 Contemporary Arts Center, New York City, a Museum of Modern Art affiliate (Curated by Alanna Heiss), the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Florida, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull.


Remfry works almost exclusively in watercolor, but not in the conventional way of small, polite landscapes.  His watercolors are large; some single-figure pieces are practically life-size, and his subjects are decidedly urban.
