About the Artist
Artist Bio: David A. Marshall
Whether portraiture, still life, figure, or landscape, David A. Marshall''s works are all strong in composition, color, form, and perspective. Acrylic paint is his medium of choice. He describes most of his paintings as ''Neon Classicism,'' sighting his observational approach to portraying classic themes while going over the edge with bright color.
Marshall''s strong visual skills were noticed early on in his childhood. Through his schooling he was trained in traditional and modern artistic techniques. While in high school he received the honor of hanging a collaborative mural in the Office of State of Maine Governor Angus King for eight years.
Now Marshall is an emerging Fine Artist and is devoting his life to bringing renewal through art. He compliments his Plein Air and Studio Painting with the creation of ''Community Murals'' through his work at the non-profit social service agency PORTLAND WEST. Teenagers who are completing community service obligations, work with Marshall on large scale murals and other arts related projects. In conjunction with PORTLAND WEST, Marshall has completed several murals and participated in the Art Show, ''Portland West Goes to City Hall'' in November of 2003. The Art Show was well attended by local politicians, artists, and activists and received State-Wide attention on Channel 8''s Late Night and Morning News.
Right around the corner from PORTLAND WEST is PINE STREET STUDIOS: Marshall''s work space and showroom located at 41 Pine Street. It is open to the public on the first Friday of each month from 5pm to 8pm for the ''First Friday Art Walk.''
