David Lloyd Glover - Canada
Art Brokerage: David Lloyd Glover Canadian Artist: b. 1949. Victoria, British Columbia is the 1949 birthplace of David Lloyd Glover. Located on Vancouver Island, this typically British city with its famous English-style gardens formed the earliest influence on Glover's art. Mr. Glover grew up on the 600-acre estate known as Hatley Castle, it's formal European and Japanese gardens, and country and ocean-side setting gave him a deep appreciation of nature's beauty. King George V visited the stone castle in 1939 that was so impressed with its grandeur that he decided it was to become the new home of King Edward VIII after his abdication from the British throne. A Japanese torpedo hit the beach in 1941 and forever changed his Royal plans. Glover's relationship with his famous uncles, Academy Award winning film director Guy Glover and Oscar winning film animator Norman McLaren, fostered his interest in fine art and painting. He demonstrated an apt talent and was granted admission to the Victoria College of Art when he was only in Grade 4 elementary school. In June 2005, Glover had a special exhibition at the Art Brillant Rodeo Drive Gallery in Beverly Hills. The show featured a Glover's jazz portrait series of the great icons in American Jazz. Images of the greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis were featured along with portraits of some of the contemporary legends like Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock.
