David Narvaez is accomplished in all aspects of drawing, painting and sculpting.  A self-taught artist, he works fluently in the difficult mediums of egg tempera and stone carving, as well as clay, oils, acrylics and watercolor.  David's art has touched people from different corners of the world.  His work is in private collections in the United States, England, France, Japan and New Zealand.  His public artworks have been on display in California, Virginia and New Mexico.


The casual observer may not see the beauty in mechanical objects or sun-bleach bones until they are presented in a certain light or composition by the artist.  Through an intense study of my surroundings, and with a concern for veridicality, I fill my artworks with light and movement informed by acute observation.  I carefully choose the visual elements that I want to share with the viewer just as a writer chooses words, and a musician arranges notes.

Whether with paper, canvas, clay, or stone, I am compelled to create art because it allows me to reflect the beauty that I see in the world around me.
My philosophical ideas about art spring from many influences including the Stone Age cave painters, the Chinese artist/monks, and the Renaissance Old Masters.  I am inspired by the writings and works of Kenneth Harris, Robert Vickery, William Merritt Chase, Augustus Saint-Gaudens and other realists.
