David is a self -taught artist who is dedicated to his art and concerned with progression of his style and development of advanced painting techniques. His works are primarily done in acrylics. However, he expresses himself using other mediums fluently, such as oil, and pastels. His view of the world comes through his paintings especially the use of colors and negative space - creating an emotional feeling in each painting. His abstract hard line paintings draw the observer into each painting revealing David’s creative intent to develop a particular feeling or story.

This provided an opportunity to develop a style that always tells a story. His painting reflects his origin and are filled with the colors and lights that fills his memory.
