I have this article about David in draft since almost a year now.
I was not sure I’d be able to describe in words what I see when I watch one of his portraits.
He has an extraordinary capacity of conveying emotion. A great range of emotions, from melancholy to aggressiveness.
This could not be accomplished but with a huge amount of skill. The impressive amount of details he captures in the human subjects of his work, so beautifully antagonized by the harsh cold wall they lean against make me want to be there to watch him paint.
That must be an extraordinary process.
David was born in 1977 in Arizona, went to school in Philadelphia, New York and Italy.
Here are some works I found on his website and various other sources.
