David Dirrane Bowes (born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1957) is an American painter, based in Turin, Italy. He was first recognized for his paintings during the early 1980s in New York's East Village.
His paintings are often brightly colored, with loose painterly strokes and make reference to multiple sources such as allegories, mythology and art history. He has been described as being a "brilliant painter", and having a "delicacy of touch and genuine fascination with the medium of paint."
Bowes' work is exhibited in the United States and Europe. He participated in the 48th Venice Biennale in 1999 and one of his works is present in the Lucio Amelio's Terrae Motus collection at the Royal Palace of Caserta. His work is held in the collection of the Walker Art Center and the Broad Contemporary Art Museum at LACMA.
