Wk 9 – Artist Conversation – David DeSantis

Artist: David DeSantis

Media: Printmaking

Gallery: Merlino

David DeSantis is currently a student here in the College of Fine Arts and is working towards a BFA in Printmaking.


David DeSantis’ prints are a mix of colors and imagery. Some of the prints are black and white and others are in color, either full color or monochrome.


David’s inspiration for creating his art varies. When asked about his ideas and the process that goes with creating his work, he said each piece can be described as spontaneously created in whatever mood he happens to be in. He says that when working, he plugs his headphones in and begins working. David says that he draws a lot of inspiration in regards to his “fluid spontaneous process” from his favorite artist Jackson Pollack, who is well known for his splatter paintings.


David’s Art is very interesting, as it is a mix of subjects. When i saw his art as i walked into the gallery, I was immediately drawn to his prints of a Samurai and a Bear. I just think his art is very pleasing to look at as well as being extremely interesting.
