David was already painting when he left his family home in Orange (Vaucluse) for an apprenticeship as a cook. In front of the canvas, as behind the stove, he delighted in mixing colours, flavours and the countless opportunities for his imagination.
Even if he chose other professional experiences, painting was still a part of his everyday life. Based in Paris, he followed the teaching of Martenot for two years and was trained in the basics of the discipline, the art of relief and strokes. A diligent student, he painted still lifes, portraits, nudes and refined his knowledge under the guidance of the Belgian artist Nadine Forster (twenty – twenty-first centuries). On returning to rural life, he discovered the joys of gardening and dedicated his works to the exuberance of nature. Influenced by the abstract expressionism of American artist Jackson Pollock (twentieth century), David honed his style, which is characterized by the effects of overlays ("dripping") and a profusion of colours and materials.
In 2010, the artist returned to live in sunny Provence, in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume (Var), which opened a new chapter in his artistic career. Inspired by the aesthetics of torn advertising posters in the Paris metro, David turned to Pop Art. Since then his creations are patchworks of bright colours. He uses old advertisements from the early twentieth century, which he glues and paints with glycerine paint and markers. These "vintage" icons populate his more and more vivacious and undisciplined works, multiplying his nods to Art Nouveau, contemporary graffiti and floral compositions.
