Artist in Residence

Many institutions enlist artists in residence, from craftsmen to contemporary artists, but one man in particular has been hitting the headlines of late – and we like his style.

Unless you’re a fashion illustration fan then you may not have heard of David Downton. His work has graced the pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair and his clients include Chanel and Harrods.

Several years ago David was snapped up by legendary hotel Claridge’s. With its breath-taking interiors – not to mention the high calibre guests – this partnership was a match made in art – and five star heaven. In his time at the London hotel, Downton has sketched the likes of Daphne Guinness, Laura Bailey and Diane Von Furstenberg to name but a few. These collaborations in the art world revolutionise the way people have access to art, from top hotels to prisons and we like it! Also… David, we’re a little bit jealous of your job…
