In 1991, David began his illustration career working mostly with book publishers in New York City in which he completed over 100 covers in a span of over ten years.

“Artists see
the world in their own unique way.”

Also, Davidʼs work graced the covers of many prominent magazines, including TIME magazine. After winning numerous awards as an illustrator and fulfilling his dream to become an “A” list illustrator, David was ready to move on to pursue a fine art career and have the freedom to create work based on his own ideas instead of copy driven projects from publishers. Since then, Bowers has had exhibitions across America and Europe and has won many awards for his fine art paintings. David currently lives in the Pittsburgh, PA area with his wife Kimberlie and their cat Rembrandt where he paints slowly and methodically day in and day out.
