The day 4-year-old David Lloyd Glover accompanied his dad to watch the Walt Disney animated film Fantasia on the big screen, his world changed. “I was overwhelmed by the remarkable imagery,” he recalls. “When my father told me it was all drawn and painted, I knew that’s what I wanted to do—and out came the paints.”
The paints, and Glover’s abiding passion for them, remained with him through a successful career as a newspaper editorial illustrator and the founder and director of an award-winning advertising agency whose clients included Pepsi Cola, Yamaha, McDonald’s and the 1988 Winter Olympics. Upon leaving the ad industry, Glover returned to his first love: fine art.
Describing his style as “vivid impressionism,” Glover says his artistic influences are rooted in the masterworks of painters such as Renoir, Monet and Cézanne. His oils on canvas,which are collected worldwide, reflect the sensibilities of color and light that have made the paintings of Gaugin and van Gogh so magical and inspiring.
Adept at capturing the atmosphere surrounding compositional elements, Glover creates a visceral connection with his viewers. “I want to bring out human emotions in my art,” he says. “I’m telling either a narrative or an emotional story using my artistic imagination, and I want viewers to feel a resonance and an impact.”
