Paintings by David A. Black
David was born and raised in the midwest. He attended high school in the Seattle area and lived there for about thirty years. David’s mother was an artist and his father was a craftsman and woodworker. David describes himself as a dreamer, and one of those kids that liked to draw in class while the teacher was talking. He remembers wanting to be a cartoonist, and discovering the Worlds of M.C., Escher, and Salvador Dali. David is a father of three, and has worked primarily in Graphic Arts/Screen printing industry since 1985.
David’s early works were mostly pen and ink, and some watercolors. In the past few years, he has incorporated acrylics into his work. David and his wife Jenny have lived on the Oregon coast since 2011. His work has shown at Bandon Coffee, Southern Coos Hospital, the Bandon and Coos Bay Libraries art galleries, and at So it Goes Coffee Shop in Coos Bay. He was awarded “People’s Choice” at the 2015 Bandon Board walk art show and 3rd place in 2016.
