ARTIST POET WRITER PRODUCER
David Fellerman Artist poet writer producer grew up in central London. His natural creative skills developed working alongside talented artists and writers of the day. He attended St Martin’s School of Art in the early 60's, opening advertising, merchandising and publishing business's in London with associate offices in New York & Sydney.
David introduced 'Rock and Roll' Merchandising into the UK and worked with domestic and international management for many artistes, including, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Rod Stewart, Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Ted Nugent, Ozy Osborne, Adam & the Ants, The Bay City rollers, Rick Wakeman, Joan Armatrading, The Moody Blues, Sammy Davis Jr, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Liza Minnelli, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Gene Pitney, Shirley McClain, Elton John, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, Michael Ball, the list goes on...
David was invited to work with The Royal Variety Show by 'Lord Bernard Delfont' and was presented to 'Her Majesty The Queen' as recognition for his work with The Entertainment Artist Benevolent Fund.
His merchandising career was a happy accident when British actor Stanley Baker and co-producer John Martin asked David to merchandise an open air Rock concert at White City Stadium; although the gig was somewhat washed out by heavy rain he sold all products before the heavens opened; the following years his company grew globally.
David embarked on a brief theatre production career co-writing and producing musical tribute shows which toured the UK; 'Rocking on Heavens Door' 'Manhattan Nights' & 'You don't bring me flowers'. David reflects on this period as a bridge too far, but loved the creative venture.
David and his wife Sylvia emigrated to Israel in 2012; he paints, writes poetry, studies modern Hebrew and is drafting his memoirs; he hopes to publish short books of his art and poetry in the coming year. For exercise, walking a glorious local beach on long summer days.
