I shut my eyes

in order to see."

Paul Gauguin


When David became ill with depression, he turned to writing and art to grapple with his symptoms. Inspired by Edvard Munch’s philosophy that we should all write or paint our life story, David is now a thriving artist. Through the mediums of gouaches, oils, and etching, he considers himself primarily a colorist and expressionist— energy and emotions are key to his work.

. . .

David’s award-winning memoir, I’ll Run Till the Sun Goes Down, tells the story of his descent into depression and the art that saves him. Richly illustrated with the work of the artists who have inspired him as well as samples of his own drawings and paintings, this memoir offers both a compelling read and a visual account of his courageous battle and with mental illness.

. . .

In 2010, David earned international acclaim by founding Twitter Art Exhibit, a social media initiative that enlists artists from all over the world to submit a hand-painted postcard that is exhibited, to help raise funds for local charities. This annual event is global, taking place in such cities as Los Angeles, Stratford-upon-Avon, and New York City.
