David Gray’s initial art education at Pacific Lutheran University (BFA) has been strengthened by continued independent and occasional formal studies in pictorial expression and oil painting. The resulting work reveals a contemporary expression of beauty which pays homage to the Classical Tradition in its craftsmanship.
David Grays’s award-winning paintings have been covered by major art publications. Including Southwest Art, Art of the West, and American Art Collector. David Gray also teaches several workshops per year in portraiture and still life painting throughout the United States and abroad.
David Gray brings a deep knowledge of and respect for the masters that translates into elegant minimalism on canvas or panel. His tonalist portraits usually focus solely on the head and shoulders. While his still lifes feature timeless objects by generous doses of negative space.
