David Merta is an illustrator born in Slovakia. He came to England to study Illustration at Art University at Bournemouth, where he was taught by established people from industry such as Joel Lardner, Marcus Oakley and David Callow. He enjoyed England so much he decided to stay, even after he graduated in 2012.
David Merta’s illustrations are marked by fine, careful executed details juxtaposed to organic textures and loose free-flowing strokes and shapes. Human figures are frequently depicted in his work, using a combination of the imagined and the observed. His most recent works indulge in use of vibrant colours.
