Corner Light - David Solomon

David Solomon, 1976

David Solomon (1943 - ) Born in East Los Angeles, California. My uncle taught me how to paint signs and encouraged me to watch how the big billboards were painted. I could watch these billboard artists paint everything from new cars to high fashion. That was my first art class. In those days the future was science. I first studied engineering and geology, then architecture and design. While working at an electronics firm I decided to quit and go to Art Center, a design school in Los Angeles. After a career as a product and architectural designer I hung up my t-square & triangle. Now I focus on painting fine art and murals.
