David Righton exhibits his paintings this month at the Port Moody Public Library.
A self-taught visual artist who interprets dreams, Righton uses scraps of hardwood floor to apply and shape his acrylics. He then layers paint on the canvas, often obscuring the original work and scrapes away to reveal the piece underneath.
Righton works in the film and T.V. industry in Vancouver and plays in the band Roche Limit. He also creates music videos, designs furniture and makes didgeridoos.
Righton is the son of Vancouver artist Colin Righton and brother of photographer Leigh Righton.
