David Korty Bio

About The Artist

Californian artist David Korty's images of scenes in Los Angeles— Ikea, malls, urban youngsters going about their everyday lives—tap into an indubitably hip aesthetic that channels oh-so-current cartoons, illustrations, and street art. However, even the most ruthless critic would concede Korty's ability to crystallize the beauty of the overlooked quotidian moment, not by embellishing or complicating it in any way but through a commendable technique of reducing reality to its most basic elements with washed out colors, geometric shapes, and simple lines.

A survey of David Korty's work will nonetheless pinball through many different moods, sceneries, and styles. The aesthetically pleasing representations will keep a hypnotic grasp on the viewer, who will be left wondering if, perhaps, they saw them in a dream.
