David Palmer is a Los Angeles-based visual artist whose work appears in galleries, museums and private collections across the US. His paintings combine the vocabulary of Pop Art with an Italian Renaissance sensibility.
He has a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and is the recipient of a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, an Artist's Grant from the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, and a residency at 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica. He has also created digital effects for over a dozen feature films, including The X-Files, Spider-Man 3, and the first Harry Potter movie.
Classical Pop Art
"...like Rosenquist, Lichtenstein, and others over the past half-century who have painted the visual racket of a consumer society, Palmer manifests not so much a love-hate relationship with the modern condition of image assault as an awe at its immensity and the thoroughness of its presence in our consciousness." - Peter Frank
