Artist Profile


David Humphrey

 b. 1955 Pittsburgh / Lives Works NYC / Maryland Institute / NYU

painting, drawing, sculpture, installation 

David Humphrey's work often includes fantastical creatures and objects fixed in unexpected juxtapositions and dreamlike tableaux. He emerged in the 1970s with a clearly Postmodern disregard for staying inside any particular aesthetic box, and has since ushered into his work cartoon figures, expressionist gestures, fantastic landscapes, hip-hop references, and academic figure drawing (often erotically charged), to name but a few  regular co-habitants of a resolutely open-ended painting.
