About The Artist

 David Blancas was born in Nueva Rosita, Coahuila in northern Mexico and began drawing and painting at an early age. He maintains a multifaceted portfolio of teaching, mentoring, and creating public and private commissions with a specialization in paintings, portraiture, mosaics and murals. David studied fine art at the University of Texas at San Antonio and has achieved recognition in various regional and national art competitions. He currently resides in San Antonio, Texas and is the sole proprietor of Pintura Artwork Company, a studio and art gallery that was established in 2002. He is also the director and lead muralist of Project Inspire: Mural Arts Program, an organization that collaborates with other agencies to produce community murals and other public art projects.

“My passion for historical and cultural themes is a recurring component of my studio, exhibition, and public art projects. My experience with various forms of media is demonstrated in bodies of work which include abstract conceptual work, sculptural 3-dimensional installations, and modern mural fabrication and installation processes. Public art can inspire and engage an individual in a visual dialogue. What that narrative may involve is up to the artist; each project represents a wonderful opportunity to have a positive impact on the cultural texture and creative landscape of a community.”
