As a native-born Angeleno, Dave has always had a love for the city that surrounds him. From an early age, he embraced the sunny disposition of the Left Coast, as well as the California “car & motor inn” culture of mid-century optimism.
In his work, the artist yearns for the day when the beauty of American design & craftsmanship was king. From his subject matter to his process, he pays his respects to a time gone by, but finds a way to re-invent its relevance in this contemporary world. For Dave, aging neon, classic cars, and vintage common objects serve as the perfect inspiration for his detailed, very limited-edition, reduction linoleum block prints.
