Description

Gift: The Art of David Flores is an in-depth review of Flores' career in the arts from skateboard designer to noted street artist and muralist. From Walt Disney to Nelson Mandela, his work is a celebration of pop culture and the people who make a difference in the world. Filled with text and hundreds of images analyzing his art and development as an artist, it's the very first in-depth review of Flores' significant rise to fame. Noted for his stained glass approach to portraiture, the iconic nature of imagery explodes off the page.


About the Author

David Flores' stained glass style of painting is a culmination of a life in the arts. Shortly after earning a degree in graphic design he cut his teeth working for Shorty's skateboards, which led to being published in the popular magazine Transworld Skateboarding. His progression to Art Director for Deluxe Distribution allowed him to work with a variety of skateboard companies and extend his range and develop an understanding of the subculture. It was in 2000, that David's interest in painting led him to create limited edition vinyl toys and clothing. It was not long before he experienced an explosion in popularity as his work outdoors and aesthetic complemented each other perfectly. The work of David Flores has been collected by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City but can be see in a range of contexts including toy stores, retail shops, art galleries, and the street.
