Memphis Crush: David Lynch Art

Thursday, March 18, 2010

It's no secret that we're in love with our little underdog city. We want to evangelize its awesomeness, as well as perpetuate it.

Our friend Cliff recently brought a new local artist, David Lynch, to our attention.

[Part of] the beauty of David's art is that you don't have be from or live in Memphis to enjoy these pieces. The bright colors, whimsical shapes, and clever interpretation of favorite city landmarks feels way more chic than dentist-office pencil drawings of the same scenes.

Feast your eyes. (HELP ME PICK!)

Around Downtown, here.

Earnestine & Hazel, here. [love the black/white]

Sunset at Harbortown, here.

Peabody Hotel, here [site of our wedding reception!]

Thanks, David, for these happy and fresh takes on our beloved city! I can't wait to bring one (or more!) of these home to admire in person (instead of just virtually).

p.s. David's second favorite subject [besides Memphis] is France. It's like the guy is in my head. j'adore!


  1. My vote is Peabody... Love the colors, and there is a deeper meaning for the 2 of you. Awww, cheesy.


  2. I've always been partial to that black and white one of E&H, but they're all great.

    thank you so much for blogging about this! I think I'm going to need one myself...I love the idea of having artwork that reminds me of home :)

  4. Oh my word, I LOVE these! The first and third are my faves. (Also love the French connection--tres bien!)

  5. Grant and I were just emailing about these this morning! We love them. He's got the Forum one in his office. I love the "around downtown", "peabody" and there's a great "grizzlies win" on his website.

  6. ooh, i love sunset in harbortown!
