Paintings by DAVID FRIDAY

Bio David Friday

David Friday New Mexico ArtistPaintings by David Friday hang in homes across the U.S. and in Europe, and they chronicle his experiences over a lifetime filled with color and emotion. His childhood, youth and higher education in Kansas (Wichita State University) have developed his depth of expression with wry humor and simplicity. From his life on the beach in San Diego, and his retreats to the Catskills in upstate New York, to his new stimuli in the mountains and desert of New Mexico, all of these influences seem to erupt on his canvases, both large and small. From a large wall fresco of the Nile, to miniature glimpses of wheat in the Kansas wind, you’ll see the influences of Picasso and O’Keefe, even Grant Wood and WPA projects of the 30’s, but what you really see is the soul of David Friday, a true ‘original’.
