Profile

David Faris Ezziddine, Painter

I paint surrealistic portraits and scenes focusing on the human figure.

I am a painter and image maker. The making of things is something I am compelled to do. In my head, runs a constant stream of images and ideas. Those that keep appearing; those that smolder and steep in my mind are translated into paintings or photo-based works. I start with a plan for each image; however, this plan often changes dramatically while the piece is in progress. I work primarily with acrylics on canvas. My recent paintings are surrealistic portraits of the human figure. For me, they explore ideas of love, death, subjective reality and spiritual transformation. I believe that each character has a tale to tell, but the paintings reveal only a fragment of each story. My goal is to allow any meaning one may find in an image to evolve over time due to the mutability of individual truth and experience.
