Artist of the moment……David Park

David Park was an American painter associated with Bay Area Figurative Movement. David Park was born in Boston, Massachusetts in the year 1911.

For his artistic education the artist attended the California School of Fine Arts.

His work is a great blend of modernism, abstraction, and realism. If I were to compare him to another painter that was not part of the California scene it would be Eric Fischl.

David Park passed away from cancer in 1960.

Price range information: The artist worked in many mediums including pencil, ink, watercolor, and oils. Prices range from $150,000 to $3 million dollars.

Much of his work was done from memory. After being severely damaged physically from cancer to work with oil paints,  Park mastered the medium of watercolor.
