Mixed media artist David Lionheart uses his keen sense of depth and spatial awareness to create abstract works, enhanced by color and texture. He employs a variety of unexpected materials to create layers of dimension; these include oil paints, spray paints, and industrial materials. In his large- scale compositions, he demonstrates a unique understanding in the power of movement over a canvas, which creates a powerful suggestive journey that walks the viewer over every square inch of the piece.
Lionheart credits his mother for having the greatest influence on him, especially in his understanding of overcoming trauma and adversity. Outside of his artistic practice, Lionheart is the founder of the non-profit organization ‘Play for Your Freedom,’ a charity for Veterans. He also has given a Ted Talk on turning trauma into triumph.
