“I am always striving to move ahead not only within my work but in my understanding of the world around me. It is through my work that I hope to share the beauty of the people that I encounter on a daily basis. 

The people that I choose as my subjects are people who seems to wear themselves on the outside. Be it through body adornment, tattoos or simply be the way they choose to style their hair.

My goal is not only to share with others my personal encounters with these subjects but it is also to create a historical record of the wide variety of beauty that can be found at the beginning of the 21st century. 

These are the faces of people that historically would not have been considered appropriate subjects for portraiture”.

David is a kind and approachable personality. A confident painter. Interested in political and social issues, also he has more interest in outsiders, rather than mainstream. Knowledgeable in art history. Previous works are very detailed, but mostly small sizes. Very responsible and trustworthy.
