Initiated at a young age in the mysteries of colour by his grandfather, David cannot remember a single day of his life without painting. He sold his first paintings at the age of twelve, already proud to continue the family tradition. The artistic career of his ancestors is indeed rich with numerous awards. However, David’s freedom takes him away from too academic a path. A very short passage at the School of Fine Arts in Nice, in the Alpes-Maritimes region, confirmed his lack of appeal for rigor and precision. The artist prefers to give free rein to his impulses, sweep away the codes and celebrate his independence. Ignited by the limitless possibilities of art, he gives of his whole being in each of his paintings. By his own admission, painting is as necessary as breathing.
Through his seascapes and landscapes, David invites the public to explore new territories. Committed and generous, his paintings are all open windows to the soul. Because, as well as artistic heir to a family tradition, he tries with respect to cultivate his individuality.
Always fascinated by his grandfather’s thick and tortured palette, he works exclusively in oil in tubes or pigment-based. His approach to the medium that he applies with a knife reveals sculpture. David’s work is in the tradition of the Impressionists. The sensual texture characteristic of his technique inspires mixtures full of tenderness. Just like colour, this relief allows him to emphasize certain elements of his compositions. An instinctive strength comes from the rough and dense features. No details or frills come between his emotions, gestures and art.
