About Don David Young

Born in the Midwest, he grew up in his mother's music school. After her death he relocated to Dallas, Texas where he attended school for fine arts. Don David's passion is to create a cutting edge that is provocative yet geared to evoke emotion. Galleries from Miami, Florida to Palm Springs, California have featured his bold German expressionistic style dramatically displayed on canvas and paper.  

"My work is based on emotions. The joy and tragedy, the dark and the light and the quest for balance are dramatically displayed on my surfaces."

"My direct influences would have to be Wilem De Kooning and Julian Schnabel, although Warhol and Herring both fascinate me as well.  

"I feel the viewer should have an "experience", or why bother?"
