David Garvey is a fine artist/illustrator who has been living in San Francisco since 1996. He attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York where he studied fine art, design and illustration. Upon graduating from Pratt Institute in 1994 with a BFA, David immediately began working as a graphic designer in New York’s thriving web development industry. David made the move to San Francisco a few years later where he found more opportunities as a designer and digital illustrator. After many years of working as a digital artist, David felt compelled to pick up a paintbrush again and get back to his roots as a fine artist
As a fine artist, David draws inspiration from the natural world. His dream-like paintings often depict creatures and environments that seem to glow with a light of their own. His detailed paintings cultivate a rich texture of the surreal and mysterious.
