Born in the city of Newburgh, NY, and raised by a single mother, David faced immeasurable challenges and traumas at an early age. David has overcome the horrific effects of sexual abuse, the catastrophic pain of a loved one’s suicide, the early struggles of life in a broken home, and the limitations of severe financial distress. He credits his mother’s indomitable strength and influence for guiding him through extreme adversity. With an intense commitment to healing, David learned to accept his struggles as blessings, teaching him the value of hardship and allowing him to help others navigate their own challenging paths.
As a 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, including oil paints, spray paints, and industrial materials, which results in a sculptural quality in his canvas and wood pieces. In his large-scale compositions, he demonstrates a unique understanding in the power of movement over a canvas, versus representing a specific subject. This creates a powerful suggestive journey that walks the viewer over every square inch of the piece.
