Welcome to David Crighton's Urban Landscapes Artwork
| Beginning at an early age, David Crighton's fascination with art and architecture developed into a career which combines them both. Since graduating from Central Technical School in 1974 David has been recording the architectural diversity of Toronto & Southern Ontario with his distinctive style.
Consequently you can explore the extensive and ever expanding catalogue of images on this website. Pen and ink drawings with the addition of bright acrylic paint are the basic ingredients of David's art-making techniques. In addition to that, he utilizes computer software to enhance the finished products by the insertion of custom lettering on various elements of the design such as billboards, newsboxes and marquees. Corporate identities can be inserted in the form of company vehicles and logos. All the images on this site are available in any proportional size, as large as posters and small as note cards. Anything is possible.
The artwork represented on this website are printed on acid-free paper using archival quality inks.
"David's Toronto street scenes continue to provide the perfect gift for our retiring board members.”-Sandra Carr-Harris, Executive Assistant, Board of Directors, St. Michael's Hospital
"I have known David since 1997. Each and every piece I have commissioned is a statement to the excellence he brings to the table in his craft. Everywhere I go in Toronto I either see his artwork hanging in or see places that he has painted which reminds me of the impact David has had to the Toronto art scene. Suffice it to say that David is an icon on the Toronto landscape. Thank you David for bringing so much to so many people."-Quintin Johnstone, Retired Police Sargeant, Toronto Police Force
