MSAC Individual Artist Award (IAA)2016
Baltimore artist Dabid Brown was born and raises in Frederick, Md. A graduate of UMBC's fine arts program, David first gained installation and design experience at the UMBC gallery. This led him to the Thomas Segal Gallery in baltimore, a private, blue-chip gallery that specialized in modern and contemporary masterworks. While at Thomas Segal, David had the oppurtinuty to interact with significant works of art on a daily basis, both in the gallery, and at international art fairs.
This intense exposure influenced David's personal artistic path, leading him toward the style that he employs today. According to David, "different from traditional Minimalism, I try to create a more personal and organic, yet minimalist image. I view my art, especially the shapes pieces, as functional. During the creation of each piece, in the repetition, I gain the opurtunity for personal meditiation."
David's work can be viewed at the Craighead Green Gallery in Texas, Pierogi Gallery in New York, Goya Contemporary Gallery in Baltimore, and also the Thomas Segal Gallery in Baltimore. He has shown in multiple national art fairs, including the Dallas Art Fair, Art Chicago, the Art Dealers show in New York, and Art Miami
