Title: Hunting Wolfman
700mm x 600mm Acrylic on canvas
This portrait was derived from an ongoing documentary project of David's that explores the disappearance and subsequent legend of a boy called Wayne in the Welsh town of Pantyffynnon.
Living feral in the deserted mines of his home village for the last 16 years Wayne became a bearded stranger to the locals, skulking the streets and gardens at night for food and clothes. Manifesting into the myth of "Wolfman", that remains today.
David painted this work and captured as a stop-frame animation based on police mugshot and applying audio sound-bites of the local hysteria.
