David was born and raised in Connecticut and has lived in New York City, Hamburg, Berlin and Paris.
Today, Vermont is his home.
David has made it part of his practice to paint in isolated locations like The Shack's in Provincetown as well as urban and suburban cities.
The methodology to David’s art is a spiritual and subconscious process.
He dreams the colors and painting structures first, imprinting the image in his head.
In his studio, he sits on the floor, looks at the negative space and starts to pick the colors from the shelf.
He lines them together on the canvas giving him a “tangible” perspective of the dream.
David rarely uses a brush. He looks at many objects, in the kitchen, hardware store, a flower garden.
He sits, stands, yoga poses as he is completely swallowed into his painting.
David is the painting, darting around the canvas, daring himself, pushing himself.
David attends the New York Art Student’s League studying under Larry Poons and Peter Bonner.
David’s paintings are collected all over the world and he is actively involved in The Human Rights Campaign and supports Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation with his art.
