About David Krilov
Through the language of art, David Krilov uncovers human identity (the good, the bad, and the ugly), unveils the mystery behind our world, and challenges the assumptions of our modern day culture. To this end, he uses a couple of techniques and styles. With his modern abstract art, his technique consists of multiple layers of paint, gestures, and mediums where the painting emerges through cycles of creation, destruction, and re-creation. With his graffiti abstract art, he uses a technique that tells a story of human nature, cultural challenges, and modern issues.
With a major in Geography, a minor in Fine Art from the University of Delaware, and with a Masters of Arts in Religion from Liberty Theological Seminary, the three backgrounds interact to come through in many of the concepts that motivate his paintings. His major influences include Jules Olitski, Wasilly Kandinsky, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman, Gerhard Richter, Makoto Fujimura, Sam Lock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and William Turner.
He currently lives with his wife and kids in the beautiful log-cabin, biking, and lake community of Medford Lakes, New Jersey, and has participated in a number of local exhibitions, as well as having his work shipped to collectors around the world.
