"(Say it in a French accent, it works!) A combination of empathy for one of the worlds most disliked inhabitants and my desire to annoy my girlfriend who has a phobia of them pushed me to make ‘Louis Pigeon’ which turned out to be my most labour intensive piece to date. 


When you look past their blank stare, bad eating habits and digit-less stumps of feet and focus on their patches of stunning colours, persistence and lack of give a fuck attitude they are mildly impressive. Team it up with the LV pattern and we have a genuine fake advertising styled promotion for the flying legend."



David Schmidt aka ‘DS’ is a US national, UK-bred urban artist, striving to create visually attractive, mentally engaging art all wrapped up in rich colour and form.

​"The first stencils I painted on the streets were in East London in 2002, an area heavily bombarded by some of the now ‘greats’ of the street art world. The stencils were crude black and white robots, but the art medium struck a note with me as a teenager.

As far back as I can remember, my love for art was big enough to tame my hyperactive mind, with laser-like focus on a paper, creating a world of minute detailed figures. Consequently a move into a medium using the tool normally suited to a surgeon seemed a natural fit.

Inspired and bitten by the street art bug, it wasn’t long before I finished my art education and started to focus on stencil art

A full time artist and designer, I have been commissioned by multinational companies, sold art in Harrods, painted MG Motors’ first official art car and much more…  but… I feel like this is only the beginning."
