David Silva
Zecatecano artist, David Silva, in his relentless effort to express himself, reunites Zapatas Cristos Villas and Don Quixote at the same table. He uses narrative and literary content, as well as many colorful artistic effects, allowing us to enjoy the originality in his fine works. We see free gestures, dynamic vitality, and Quixotes that emerge from their meditations, not always optimistic about the condition of humanity. His traditional Mexican paintings share his work in a revolutionary, political and social context of the past and present. David resides in Rosarito.
