Join Toronto Illustrator and Artist David Crighton as he explains his craft
David Crighton has created much loved landscapes of Toronto - historic landmarks, neighbourhoods, Municipal, Provincial and Federal Government Buildings, Police and Fire Stations, Hospitals, Education Institutions and collages that pull together key locations throughout cities, neighbourhoods and countries for close to 35 years. Many collectors own more than one David Crighton and ALL love and adore these beautifully detailed and well executed works AND the man who created them.
David's artworks make wonderful birthday gifts, gifts for her, gifts for him, Christmas presents, housewarming gifts, retirement awards, souvenirs and mementos of Toronto Canada.
I would love you to come and be part of the David Crighton community.

"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
"I was very excited to learn that I had won the 'David Crighton Art Print Of Your Choice' draw from The British Isles Show! There were so many wonderful pieces to choose from, it was difficult to settle on just one. Attached is a picture of the print I chose. We have had it framed and it now hangs beautifully in our dining room. Thank you so much!! We are overjoyed."

"I have two of them on my walls. One is a black and white of the flat iron building . The other has the old and new city halls with an old and new streetcar going by . I chose them because they are both iconic Toronto buildings . It was hard to choose just two - I love your artwork."
-Lauren Blatt, Collector and Facebook Fan
"Very glad that you returned to One Of A Kind this year. Missed your beautiful drawings. I have several black and whites of Toronto Victorian houses but The Street is by far my favourite. Never would have guessed that you are also a Corrie fan of 30 years. Love your work, hope you return next year."
-Diane Reilly, Collector and Facebook Fan

"I have yet to see a picture of David's that I don't like. His work is amazing!" ~ Dianne Gow, Collector and Facebook Fan
"Love this print. I grew up just down the street from this Beaches landmark, and David has captured the soul of this building in his work. This would be the perfect companion to my print of The Goof, which just happens to be located across the street from The Fox." ~ Bryan Suddard, Collector and Facebook Fan
