Featured Artist: David Marion

Colorful, thematic, and full of passion are just a few words to describe the work of David Marion Green.  Born in South Carolina in 1982, David Marion found his artistic gift at a very young age.  Never being formally trained, he looked for new ways to expand on these talents, but it was not until high school that he learned the technical skills he needed to enhance his artistic abilities.  From there, a whole new world was unleashed.

David Marion went on to pursue a degree of Architecture at Hampton University in 2000.  Still very passionate about art, he continued to grow and experiment with different mediums.  After graduating in 2005, he began working in the field of architecture while still painting in his spare time trying to perfect his craft.  By 2007, David Marion finally created a signature style which he describes as “realism with a touch of the surreal”.

As an artist, David Marion draws inspiration from his own life experiences and tries to make a statement with every piece that he creates.  Art has become a platform to voice his views of the world and also tell his story.  “Art is such a powerful tool of communication and my overall goal is to give my testimony through art; in hopes that it can further inspire someone else or help them to realize the true gifts that are within them”.David Green
