PRE EDUCATION

 David first started drawing at the age of 3, and painting at the age of 8. After drawing from comic books during adolescence he became intensely interested in oil painting after viewing master works from Caravaggio and Rembrandt. David started painting in acrylic and then oils regularly after high school and joined Sheridan College. At this time he had his first shows at the Art Gallery of Hamilton and other local galleries.  Luckily in Toronto he was able to find an education that could come compare to the great paintings created by old masters like Van Dyke and Rubens.

 

EDUCATION

The Academy of Realist Art (ARA), a Toronto based private school founded by renowned realism artist John Michael Angel who in turn was taught by artist Pietro Annigoni.   The school provides the same training as the famous 19th Century French Academies which included painters like William Bouguereau and Charles Bargue. After 4 years of study under the Academic system, he graduated from their program in 2012.
