David Andrew Nishita Cheifetz – born 1981
David is an internationally acclaimed and collected artist who continues to push the limits of contemporary realist oil painting.
“Reflecting the language of dreams, these dark, hyper-realistic tableaux suggest bizarre and intriguing narratives. Cheifetz paints alla prima, an oil painting technique in which wet paint is applied to previous layers of wet paint. He works without detailed under-painting or studies, creating atmosphere through prominent, expressive brushstrokes and strong chiaroscuro.”
