Designer gone Street Artist

I found it interesting that Dave Kinsey, a young artist from Southern California, was trained as a designer, designed to be able to afford to paint and now shows his work internationally in gallery s and city streets alike. His hands-on training as a graphic designer, allows him to know how to work layouts in his paintings, he knew how to manipulate type and pieces of paper, layers of color and texture, and this is evident in his paintings and city murals today. Urban settings are frequently the settings of Kinsey’s work, which he doesn’t like to explain, “since it takes away from each person’s experience. (Kinsey) Although he wants “to expose as many people to art as possible and to honor the power art has when it’s created and accepted.” Kinsey says he is his own worst critic, which I can agree is true for myself. Get a glimpse of his life below.
