Sinopia Artist of the Month May 2011: David Molesky

David Molesky San Francisco, CA

Sinopia is proud to present the May, 2011 artist of the month: David Molesky. David Molesky was born in 1977 and grew up in Washington, D.C. After doing black and white photography for several years, David began oil painting at age 14 . In 1995, David relocated to the west coast and received a BA from UC Berkeley in 1999 in Art Practice and Pre-med with an emphasis in Neurobiology. Currently David works out of his studio on Market Street in San Francisco. David has exhibited his work nationally and internationally and in 2006 David spent time in Norway and Iceland studying with Odd Nerdrum.

David's work predominantly explores natural elements such as rocks, water, sky, and clouds and sometimes figures. Even though David lived on the Monterey Peninsula only from 2003-2006, his work continues to draw much inspiration from his experiences in this area.
