David Santiago's Bio
"My love of art was ignited during my tenure in college when I was introduced to one of the basic components of my art, charcoal. With the discovery of charcoal, I have continued exploring my artwork with the addition of pastels, oils, acrylics, watercolors and blush; all of which, are portrayed on handmade wooden panels."
Santiago's personal passion within the realm of female portraiture and the female figure has been inspired by the culture of the Southwest, with a particular fondness of Dia de los Muertos and Native American Culture.
"I feel my sense of emotion is captured during my creations to describe a tale only the on-lookers can create with their own feelings."
