David has received critical acclaim in a variety of projects. He is one of the spearheads of new movements of creative hybrid professionals who offer innovative works, which mix the best of contemporary art and design.
David’s work addresses the issues affecting the Brazilian people such as environmental degradation, drug trafficking, violence, inadequate urban infrastructure, and security. The artist also attributes the formation of the modern Brazilian culture to the blending of foreign cultures such as Asian, African and European. He uses this aspect of cultural hybridization to develop and design his work.

About the Work:
My inspiration for this series called “sinalização" is how Brazilians use a specific types of plants in their homes to ward off bad luck. Amulets that protect against mal-olhado (bad luck) tend to be generally resistant, mildly to strongly toxic and dark plants placed in specific and strategic places of a garden or the entry to a house.
Here, a neon sign (inspired by the actual road sign) illustrates this common practice while alerting newcomers. Found objects and up cycling are apparent in “sinalização" as it describes art created from everyday materials that are modified and also considered Objets Trouvés. | Carpe Diem |
