Dave Gold was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1975. Dave has always been into the arts in one way or another. Since he was a child he was always the odd child, instead of playing with the rest of the children he would rather spend his time drawing pictures in the corner.
Dave began his visual art career back in 2002. He was creating a gift for his mother’s birthday, than began painting snack tables, which eventual brought him to the artist canvas. His work began as abstract art, which emerged into what he does now which is pop – surrealism. Dave Gold is becoming more involved within the pop surrealism culture and movement. Dave will continue building and expanding his iconic signature for the rest of his life.
Art is the world to me. It is a place where I can let myself escape from the everyday stressors in life. In my paintings I communicate between two worlds the real world and my world. I put a strong emphasis on the deterioration of the environment and the ongoing fight to preserve it. Within my overall concept, I include other stories that I experience in my life or feelings and emotions that are affecting me. I love to use lines connecting objects together to form a sort of community relationship within the painting. However, most of my lines run off the canvas allowing the viewer to create their own world outside the canvas. For me the canvas is just a snapshot of a much larger world outside the borders of the painting, which lies in the viewers mind.
I am a highly emotional painter. I paint off my emotions, as well as things affecting the world around me such as pollution, the economy, and my day to day experiences with others who affect my life. This is my world, enjoy a piece of me.
