David VALL Artist Bio:
David Vall was born in France in 1978. Even though graphite pencil drawing, Chinese ink painting and Japanese calligraphy were early artistic interests for him, he turned towards higher education in science and became a researcher in behavioural neurosciences. Two years spent in British Columbia led him to discover natural scenery and lights of rare emotional intensity that awakened interest in the magic of colours. His encounter with a Canadian painter made him to reconnect with drawing, but a few more years went by before the desire to try oil and acrylic painting grew and hatched. Painting is now a passionate and vital activity for him. His sources of inspiration are multiple: a piece of art he admired, the remembrance of scenery he contemplated, an emotion or a state of mind that holds on to his soul and wishes to take shape. Abstraction quickly became his preferred means of expression, allowing for incredible freedom, even if figurative themes can be chosen or suggested for specific orders. Knifes are preferred over brushes because they allow for a more structured work on materials, while permitting the introduction of random effects in shimmering and colour gradients. David Vall refuses any stylistic restraint, likes to explore varied techniques and textures, finds his inspiration into the work of artists he likes while developing his own pictorial approaches. According to him, creativity is a set of experiences, memories and knowledge poured into the crucible of individuality, heated by emotions and extracted as a new and original form. Creativity, it is building connections, reformulating what already exists, inventing another reality or an abstraction upon what is known, what has happened and what has been lived. The human spirit does not create from void. It opens, gathers, and draws its inspiration from what is possessed.
