Lives & Works in Atlanta, GA, USA
Christa David is a visual artist, writer and researcher. Inspired by the artistic works of Romare Bearden, Wangechi Mutu, Alma Woodsey Thomas, and literary works of James Baldwin, David fuses the mediums of painting, collage, and assemblage to create and recreate stories about home, belonging, faith, and identity. In September 2016 she took the leap and began making art full-time after years doing so during time off from her demanding work as senior public health researcher New York City, which she calls “making art in the cracks”.
David holds Bachelor of Arts and Masters degrees from Columbia University. Her work is held in personal and public collections throughout the United States including the prominent David C. Driskell Center and has been most recently exhibited at AKAA Fair in Paris, and PRIZM Art Fair at Art Basel in Miami Beach.
Christa David will be presented by 193 Gallery.
