David Poole

Co-founder & Director, Slashstroke


David is a graduate of Fashion Design from the Limerick School of Art and Design, Ireland.

David’s work is primarily concerned with the space that exists between particulars, the connectivity between processes of abstraction and realization of concepts in a visual language. "Playing with contrasts, light and colour, absence and presence, momentum and stillness, hard and soft, male and female, good and bad, its a rule for making". His work is marked by his exploration of media, materials, process and output across Design, Illustration, Styling and Photography.

Co-founder and Director of Slashstroke, a multilateral creative organisation working with a wide range of clients from Art, Fashion, Design and Education offering bespoke projects from live interactive events, educational programs, Creative Direction and production.

In addition to this, Slashstroke offers an online platform and magazine exploring connectivity through creativity across disciplines.

From Creative Direction and Fashion sketching to live art projects his professional practice directly feeds into his teaching with over 15 years experience of lecturing in Ireland and the UK.
