We’ve been selling David Weidman’s prints for quite some time now after the discovery of his book ‘The Whimsical World of David Weidman’ at Magma book shop. A little bit of research and a phone number later I was straight on the phone. In my excitement I’d forgotten the time difference in LA and woke both Dorothy (his wife) and Lenna (his daughter), in the middle of the night. To my surprise rather than being upset at my faux pas they were delighted that a gallery in London had discovered David’s work.
Weidman’s work is experiencing a revival after the retailer Urban Outfitters approached him about applying his designs to a range of products for their US based stores (fingers crossed those products will make their way across the pond).
It’s great that at 89 David’s work is finally getting the recognition it deserves. If you would like to know more about his life and work click here for a recent article in the LA Times.
We have three prints available to buy online at Elphick’s (pictured) or visit the shop where we will have a small selection of signed and numbered prints.
