David Schonhoff was born and raised in the beautiful county of San Diego, California. After moving to Ventura, CA in 2008, he attended California State University of Channel Islands where he received a Bachelor in Studio Art. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles and finds the diversity of the city to be his main source of inspiration. The imagery in his paintings are intended to be universally understood, surpassing the differences created by culture, race, religion, age, and language.
“I believe that all people are connected whether we realize it or not. We all work together towards a common goal of happiness. The world is extremely culturally diverse, especially here in Los Angeles where I live and work, and I find the city and its people to be very inspiring. If we slow down and observe what’s going on around us, then we are able to have a better understanding of our connection with others.”
