David Baird is an oil painter and draftsman focused primarily on contemporary figurative painting. While inspired by subject matter familiar to art history, his work is equally motivated by the translation of perception into painting, a process by which the representation of form and the sensuality of experience is in constant tension with the materiality of paint and the flatness of the surface.
During his studies, David has benefitted from extensive exposure to some of Europe’s greatest works of art. He has traveled broadly, attending the Ryder Studio School (NM, USA), the Art Students League (NYC, USA), Studio Escalier (FR), and the Jerusalem Studio School (Jerusalem, IL), where he was awarded the Avigdor Arikha Masterclass Scholarship in 2019 to continue his studies in Italy. He has also taught classes throughout the US, Europe, and Australia.
