DAVID HUMPHREY was born on the island of Barbados. In 1968, he migrated with his family to New York. David gained an art background from Parsons New School for Social Research major in Illustration and Lehman College major in Studio Arts. He found his inspiration in the works of Norman Rockwell, Dali and Thomas Kinkade. He exhibited his art works as a member of New Rochelle Art Association, New Rochelle Arts Council, Bell Harbor Art Association, Cornell University, in Vladeck Hall Gallery, Lehman College Art Gallery and Bronx Council on Arts Blue Bedroom Project. David also has done several artworks on commission that reside in private collections.
“… I did not set out to create art about any particular topic or subject. I carry a sketchbook with me at all times, in which I make pictorial journals of the things around me. As I spent more time observing and making sketches, I discovered that I could not be an observer without an opinion, because of my observations I decided to make my commentary on the environment, religion and other social issues. Using my skills and passion for painting realism in my illustrations, I set out to create beautiful images of things I encounter in my daily life. I also create cosmic entities based on stereotypes in our social interactions.”
