CARLOS DAVID

VISUAL ARTIST (Mexico - New York)

Carlos David is a visual artist focusing on diversity and inclusion. Through multimedia portraiture, he explores the complicated relationship between the way we see ourselves ​and the objective reality captured by the camera and the observer. The focus of his work is to create a diverse community drawn together by the collective action of revealing their fantasies and dreams. ​He works on fine art and commercial multimedia projects.

David’s work has been exhibited in galleries around New York City, including Franklin D Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, El Barrio’s Artspace PS109, Ozaneaux Artspace Instituto Cervantes, and MNN el Barrio’s Firehouse. And internationally in Mexico, Slovenia, and Croatia.

David is a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) Creative Engagement grantee (2019) and Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone (UMEZ) Arts Engagement grantee (2019). And a Creative Capital Taller (2018) alumni. His project Persona II has been shortlisted for Aesthetica Art Prize 202, on exhibition at York Art Gallery in the United Kingdom in 2021.
