STATEMENT

My work is expressive; an inner world where subjective experience collides with objective reality on the battlefield of the canvas. I explore this duality, fusing representational and abstract approaches in an attempt to reconcile opposites and find balance.

My style is immediate. Rarely do I know what I will paint beforehand, choosing instead to let unconscious impulses direct the work and guide my hand. Each brushstroke is a risk that will either pay-off or bankrupt; a chance; a lesson in how to conduct a life worth living.

Related influences that have helped shape my work and personal philosophy include the process of Emergence, Taoism and the patterns of Fractals.

BIO

The son of two artists, David grew up in New York City when it was covered with graffiti and Keith Haring originals. Punk and Hip Hop were born, cinema was reignited and underground art moved into the mainstream as a cultural explosion concussed the city. From this emerged David’s artistic beginnings.

Influenced by underground comics, Heavy Metal Magazine, album cover art, and 70’s music and cinema, David developed a style that would later be refined by the plethora of work he discovered in the museums and galleries. 

David studied filmmaking at NYU and later, art and design, beginning a career as a digital Art Director at some of the top agencies in New York.

In 2006, David returned to fine art, leaving behind his many influences to pursue his own unique style and vision.
