David Barkhau is a U.S. visual artist based out of Raleigh, NC. All original works are completed by hand in oil paint on sheets of oversized fine art paper. His work presents the ordinary uniquely, allowing the viewer the opportunity to reinterpret. Through daily life, he absorbs surroundings and circumstances, where an internal filter parses, analyzes, and reconstructs these happenings in humorous and interesting ways. The visual communication is direct and immediate. The execution embraces a certain naivety, highlighted by simple commentary. This juxtaposition of the routine and complex is further enhanced by blending a traditional fine art medium (oil paint) with non-traditional subject matters.
