Pictured below we see the work of the late David Band featured in the stunning interiors from Australia’s favourite style blog, The Design Files. Band’s works bring a simple yet bold graphic element to any space, drawing the viewer in with the subtle and expert use of detail and texture. The wit and personality of the works lights up the interiors of any living space or gallery wall alike.
The work ‘Happiness’ takes pride of place in the founder of the The Design Files’, Lucy Feagins, home office. We also see the work of Band in the homes of some of Australia’s most celebrated artists and designers, such as Rachel Castle, Kirra Jamison and Dane Lovett, Mark and Louella Tuckey, Juliette Arent Squadrito and Matthew Squadrito as well as Natalie Bloom of Bloom Cosmetics.

The work of the late David Band will be celebrated in an exhibition this October hosted by Olsen Irwin and Jan Murphy Gallery in Brisbane. Fiona Mahon, David’s partner, has curated this extensive exhibition held over two venues. Working closely with Fiona, the two galleries will be exhibiting paintings, monotypes prints and sculptures executed over a fifteen-year period.
