"I began my unique pointillist style in the latter months of 2017. It is a process which I have not deviated from and I continue to learn from each painting. First, I carve out the pencilled image with linocut tools on MDF, then spray paint at a certain angle to pick out the grooves and lay a rough colour scheme, finally tiny acrylic dots are applied with the tip of a small palette knife to add the final colour. The grooves give definition to the pointillist style, first created by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in 1886. I love to be original, and believe that my diagnosis of Paranoid Schizophrenia has opened my mind to be gifted in such a precise technique. Today, I continue to be well and fruitful in all aspects of my life, and look back on my history with mental illness with interest and nostalgia." David John Almond
