Palliativity 191: counting to none

Posted on April 25, 2013

Tomorrow we take it to the next level.

The Apocalypto Nouveau show at Firecat Projects has been in the works since March of 2011.

I can't believe it is finally here.

There are many reasons to be thankful:

For those who have believed in me.

For those who inspire me.

For those who have challenged me.

For my beloved friends, family and ancestors.


In the wake of a century beyond words;

desert prisons

silent suffering

atomic bombs


and crippling chronic pain,

I am here to deliver this message:

My turn.

Radiation Situation: The Post Fallout Perspective Show

Posted on April 3, 2013

I'll be showing a few of my pieces at this exciting group show hosted by Depaul University this Friday!

"A collaboration between DePaul students and community artists to speak on the topic of the past, present, and future of nuclear weapons through various artistic mediums. Among those represented are students who studied abroad in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and witnessed firsthand the results of nuclear destruction. This exhibit also features professional artists from the Chicago community who speak to this issue. The mediums represented in this exhibition are limitless! There will be prints, large installations, a video game, short films, poetry readings, and the list goes on. This is an event not to be missed! This date also commemorates the 4th anniversary of President Obama’s nuclear disarmament speech in Prague. In this speech he states, "When we fail to pursue peace, it stays forever beyond our grasp." Come celebrate progress, and our common interest in a nuclear weapon free world."

DePaul University Lincoln Park StudentCenter • 2400 N Sheffield Ave, Chicago, IL

Friday April 5, 2013 • 7-9PM

Apocalypto Nouveau – Firecat Projects

Posted on November 12, 2012

Announcing the show that we have all been waiting for:

David’s first solo show Apocalypto Nouveau dives into the trenches and returns with a glimpse of the future. His digital collage combine photographs and classic nouveau imagery to create the broken landscape of a world at war. This century long fight for identity and deliverance; a delicate dance at the of brink of oblivion. Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think…
