David Cooper is an artist, born in Brooklyn, New York in 1978. His work has connections to graffiti, comic book art and expressionism. He graduated from The Pratt Institute in 2000 with a BFA in Communications Design. His paintings and sculptures were featured in Print Magazine. His work has appeared in The New York Times Book Review and a Sprite ad campaign featuring basketball great, Lebron James. He has collaborated with the Eames Foundation and Barney’s New York to benefit Operation Design, by painting directly on an iconic Eames lounge chair, which was auctioned off, in an effort to help raise money to redesign underprivileged urban schools. He has guest lectured at various institutions such as The Pratt Institute, FIT MFA and Marywood University MFA programs. He is a muralist, whose work has graced the walls of The Carlton Arms Hotel, the streets of Brooklyn and Miami and even secret rooms in abandoned buildings in Upstate New York, which have become sought after by urban explorers. His recent work is mainly composed of bold "stream of consciousness" drawings; meditative work that explores untapped emotion, fluidity of line and form.
