Read part one of our interview with David- HERE
Ø What are you addicted to?
Ink Master. I know it’s ridiculous. I have no tattoos. Don’t want any. The show sux. But if it’s on I'll watch it. Don’t judge me
Ø What gives your art meaning?
My art is very personal and is a pouring out of emotion. I think the audience is able to connect with these emotions as we all feel, hurt, love, hate etc and this is the reason I make art. My work is honest and from the heart. I try to be original in a world saturated with imagery. I think about my work for a long time before I start making it. Thinking about the work takes way more time than actually putting marks on a surface. I take a lot of care with the things that I make
Ø Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give yourself when you started in the arts?
Networking is as important as actually making the work. Go to as many events as you can. Expand your audience with social media. It’s not enough to just produce. People need to see it, and as many people as possible before someone with more exposure starts ripping on you’re shit lol. I don’t attend half the events I should and have to force myself to use social media. It has probably hurt my career but whatevs. I’m still emerging. I have time right?
