David West

Paris, France

"You can say I’m an individualist with a long career- and a lot of long term interests, from portraiture and music, to sea and cityscapes."
I live in Paris. I’m a painter and multimedia artist. I’m interested in the detritus and memories of places, and the vanishing world of cities. I currently work a lot in pastel and watercolour, as well as a crazy new group of paintings on velvet.
You may find a certain rock and roll attitude in my work, because I came up in a rock and roll world.
Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"My work is usually a dialogue- whether I’m drawing, writing, editing or working with a theater company or musical collaboration- I have trust in knowing when something is finished, or to go through something difficult to make it work.
Like most people who work with fragile materials, I strive to make something correct the first time, and not overwork it. In the times I do, if I decide it’s salvageable, I have to work thru killing it, and bring it back to life....
Generally I want to be in the headspace where I do it right the first time."
