About David Grossman
David Grossmann’s evocative landscapes blur the edges between reality, memory, and imagination. Grossmann was born in Colorado but grew up in Chile, and his adventures as an artist have taken him to many parts of the world. He now lives in Colorado again, where he and his wife, Kristy, find endless inspiration in the surrounding landscape.
Merging techniques from centuries ago with a contemporary aesthetic, Grossmann’s work bridges the gap between old and new, tradition and abstraction. He works on hand-made panels which become the base for luminous layers of pigment and intricate surface textures that he meticulously develops in his studio paintings. It is a time-consuming, meditative process that Grossmann balances with his frequent treks outdoors to paint directly and spontaneously from nature.
Grossmann’s work has received wide recognition from critics and collectors through exhibits across the United States and in Europe. His many awards include the Artists Choice Award and the Southwest Art Award of Excellence at the Coors Art Show. Grossmann’s work has been featured in numerous publications including Artists and Illustrators, American Art Collector, Plein Air Magazine, Southwest Art, and the Royal Academy Magazine.
