About David

David Buckingham roams windblown alleys, abandoned factories, gritty industrial areas, bad neighborhoods, and the low deserts of Southern California in search of the cast away, the discarded objects.

His latest finds have included 55-gallon barrels, wheelbarrows, tool boxes, road signs, tractor parts, car doors, and gas cans. Buckingham carts all these dusty relics to his metal workshop in downtown Los Angeles, where they are muscled into works of art and large typographical signs. The only aspect of them he leaves intact is their colors.

His work has been exhibited in California, Illinois and Germany.
