David is a Mexican American artist working from his studio in Rogers, Arkansas. He explores the place of humanity in the cosmos and the delineation of meaning and context through lines and shapes. The latter is a recurring theme of his work as he contends with the results of the aggregate of lines, type fonts, and biomechanics into language or symbols. His immanent inquisition of meaning derives from a longing to understand and be understood. As the child of Evangelical ministers in mostly Catholic Mexico, his customs and cultural association made him feel lost and an outsider in his own homeland. Exacerbating these feelings of peerless formative sojourning, his world view developed through a lens of undiagnosed ADHD, dyslexia, and stammering. At the age of fourteen, his family relocated to the US and again language became a new invisible border and the lack of historical context within the new culture rekindled the feelings of an earlier life. His work presents these obstacles with insidious cypher-like markings ubiquitous of his work. Strands and series of symbols and code merge together as if orchestrated musically in a way that only those who have seen or worked with those symbols and context can recognize them and partake of meaning. However, his work is not exclusionary. Instead, he collects symbols and imagery that are prevalent in popular culture and slowly expands into more insidious themes.
Although he studied art and two-dimensional design, he turned his studies to business, statistics, and data analysis research when his art career failed to launch. From 2001 until 2019, his art production was seldom, unpaid, or portraits in graphite. However, during the Christmas holiday of 2018 a seemingly uncaused catharsis of creativity took place while visiting his extended family. He began with copy paper and Sharpie markers. This moment became the true birth of the artist. He found his voice and understood that he had so much to say and that words and language were not enough to share all that was burning inside. From that day he has explored acrylics, spray paint, graffiti markers, pastels, and different styles of painting. As his creative inspiration emerged overnight, his career has thrived almost at a similar pace. His work has shown, in New York, Milan and Paris. He collaborates with art institutions in Northwest Arkansas and recently was Program Manager for visual arts and Arts One Presents. In this role he established the inception of a visual arts program that brought public art installations in Springdale Arkansas by teaming local artists and businesses that provided next level opportunities for artists to grow. Currently, David works independently, painting and curating shows as well as participating in group exhibits like Meta14 with artists Lourdes Valverde and Brioch. Immediate plans for his career are his first international show in Madrid, returning to Paris and several juried art shows in the US.
