Artist statement:
David Cooley was born in North Hollywood, CA in 1978, and currently lives in Santa Barbara, CA. He’s been creating art ever since he was a youngster. Now he’s creating intricate multi layered, multi dimensional mixed media paintings using mostly acrylic, resin, spray paint, pen and fabric, to achieve an effect in and of his own. He’s always been inspired by the idea of creating something that’s previously only existed in thought and making something that’s tangible, with the intent to have an impact on others, weather it’s thought provoking, fun, or just aesthetically pleasing.
