His self-taught ability and adaptable personality have garnered great opportunities as his work has been published in various weekly magazines and has been featured in galleries across the city including The Gladstone Hotel, Only One Gallery, #Hashtag Gallery and Rally Ossington.

Dave's work exhibits metaphors for gossip & satire, contrast & comparison and social & political ideals. Dave’s tools are multiple and mixed and extend beyond the paintbrush.

Artistic Statement

I have been producing murals in Toronto since i attended art school as a teenager. My early influences which speak to my present style include classic cartoon animation, Armenian cultural symbols and an element of playfulness and humor. My mural content is normally a whimsical portrayal of people portrayed in my personal style which I have been developing over my career as an artist and illustrator.
