I have been painting seriously for around two years with artage and recently felt comfortable enough with my skill to show off my work. . Heres a few I've done this week. I paint ALOT so i figure ill just contain it all to this thread rather than hog all the space in this forum

Hope you guys like it

Looking at the mastery and artistic inspiration and creativity You can display, You kept even too much and too modestly Your artpieces behind the curtains. Congratulations and welcome for sure.

Surrealism and Wrestling. Gotta love it. Seems like the fight to hold reality in a fixed place just got a flying drop kick. Now that Salvador Dali has been kicked to that big canvas in the sky, there's a place for some new artist here to win the championship belt and become Surrealist Champion of the World. The masked surrealist just stepped into the ring. . . lllllLLLLLLLEEEETTTTSSSSSS RUMBLEEEEEE!!!!!

David, You should have gotten over that "not feeling comfortable thing" along time ago! These are 'GREAT'!
You certainly have nailed your style, I love them! Keep them coming!


10-03-2013, 08:30 PM
Fresh, juvenile, modern, creative, surrealistic art. Excellent gallery and new entries.

10-06-2013, 12:31 AM
Once again great to view all these, well done:)

Once again very exciting paintings and love the elephant:)

You make a sublime mix of surrealistic, metaphysical and comics style in utmost original and creative compositions. You master all those chords and, as far as I can see, also the portrait/ caricature skills! Congrats!

Wacky! Love it. I particularly like the political one. Lots of allusions incorporated into the image, each making a comment on the US political scene.

But the one with the woman with the great set of light bulbs. . . the associations are endless - anywhere from the light bulb being a symbol for an idea to it being the torch of knowledge held by the Statue of Liberty which in the modern age has been lowered to the reverence for physicality and sexuality as embodied in part by the knowledge provided through the electronic Internet.

Just cool stuff throughout.

10-13-2013, 06:02 PM
Very nice! I'm really liking your style! A lot of it just screams "Dali" (whom I absolutely adore by the way so I most definately mean that as a compliment!)

And the Elaine one made me chuckle. ;) Looking forward to more!

10-14-2013, 03:14 AM
Wow great surrealista style i like very much your work , I like the surrealista ilustration, they ar contemporary and modern:rolleyes:

Yes Dali is one of my three influences ( The other two being Zdzisław Beksiński and H.R Giger.) So I'm very happy to have my work compared to his style. I wasn't quite sure if his influence was showing or not.

and thank you all again for your very flattering comments.:o:D

Heres some more stuff.

10-15-2013, 11:57 PM
Ohhhh I love looking through this thread and the new additions are really terrific:)

10-16-2013, 02:15 AM
Apart from Dalì, which is more or less cited and overcited by almost anyone, I can see, apart from some great comics styles (Moebius for instance), influences by masters such as René Magritte and the metaphysical painting, more Giorgio De Chirico than the early Carlo Carrà.

Wow, the last one looks like it could be from a deck of cards -- would have to be the queen of something. . . They used to have decks of cards with girlie images on them for servicemen in the military and such, but in those cases the girlie pics were on the back side of the deck. This could be on the face side. . . in a perfect world.

Fun imagery all around -- a visual romp. If you stuck with this kind of invention, I could easily see you influencing short animations.

David Sanchez
10-24-2013, 01:22 AM
ha thats true maybe i should think of doing a series for a whole deck of cards sometime down the road:D

3 new ones

10-24-2013, 08:31 AM
You got an amazing imagination, and they're so well painted. :cool:

10-24-2013, 09:51 PM
I keep enjoying Your inventions very much and I notice that acid yellow is a must in Your palette, which may add much to the somehow satyrical, trasgressive and disenchanted mood and look on this world. It seems to me that You're progressively turning a little towards comics stripes, pop art and murales. Maybe it's a faster, more productive, but still effective way to illustrate Your ideas.

10-26-2013, 12:45 AM
Again amazing and inventive work:)

David Sanchez
11-13-2013, 08:45 AM
thanks again:o

I feel like my techniques been improving quicker since ive been showing my work . I think its forced me to work harder and analyze my weak spots better im starting to see gaps of improvement in each little groups of paintings ive been showing.

11-13-2013, 03:39 PM
Hi David, your line is becoming more intricately interlaced ... have you been sidetracked by Bosch recently?:)

D Akey
11-13-2013, 07:08 PM
Very twisted. Nice work! Nice crisp execution. . . so to speak, with 'execution' being the operative word. Iconoclastic. Looks like the cherubs lost their heads and their religion and virginity all in one felled boney-winged swoop. Heaven's been sacked. The pearly gates couldn't hold anymore and the ideal has been compromised. It's as if the 'barbarians" have invaded and turned it to what they are capable of envisioning as the way to go. It's the Dark Ages with electricity.

I see Bosch and Goya and Dali and an illustrator or two having given a couple little side comments as you were developing your style. Shocking. Curious. Symbolic. A trip.

11-13-2013, 09:22 PM
Those are all well done and very interesting, but I must say they also give me the creeps! I like the colour palettes.

11-13-2013, 10:47 PM
Always capturing and intriguing images where messages take antropomorphic images to be powerfully stated.

Hi David, your line is becoming more intricately interlaced ... have you been sidetracked by Bosch recently?:)

I was never particularly inspired by bosch though looking back at his stuff i certainly see the similarity with my more recent paintings

It's always fun to get compared to artist i haven't drawn inspiration from though. I got a mark ryden meets Beksinki the other day.;)

Thanks again guys and heres some more stuff.

12-11-2013, 05:41 PM
Holy surreal life batman! :)

These are great. Thanks for sharing them!

12-12-2013, 12:27 AM
I guess there's also either some form of unconscious influence we may, either directly or indirectly by other artists or experiences, and also some of our brain circuits which may develop networks similar to those of other people. I'm once more admired of what Your inspiration produces.

12-12-2013, 03:01 AM
Great work, well done:)

12-17-2013, 03:57 AM
Wow, great thread, there is some super nice stuff in here.

12-17-2013, 10:07 AM
Yeah... David :cool: Great work.



12-17-2013, 01:24 PM
Looking at your art I must say I'm very impressed with your skills as an artist. I am not a fan of this kind of art and it seems like a waste of good talent. That is my opinion of course but anything goes these days.
You are very good at capturing expressions and character.

12-17-2013, 07:14 PM
I rather like them! Surrealism isn't something I've been able to do so far. I think I just don't have the brain for it, but I have great appreciation for it when it's done well - it often isn't, but I think these are.

David Sanchez
01-29-2014, 10:48 PM
Thanks again guys! Been a bit busy but heres two recent ones

01-30-2014, 12:09 AM
Very creative and beautifully painted! :cool:

01-30-2014, 04:16 AM
Once more I do like very much Your compositions, light palette, imagination and expressivity of the faces and hands You depict, as well as Your nice anatomical elements descriptions and the diverse objects You put.

01-30-2014, 04:42 AM
Hello David,
Very imaginative mind tripping art you've created here, reminds me of the sixties and seventies..
Multiple images and flying objects for no apparent reason, other then the creative flow of the mind.
Nicely done,

D Akey
01-30-2014, 08:45 AM
Your technique is showing more finesse. Very well painted.

02-02-2014, 03:50 AM
I really like your artwork. It's very unique :):D

02-02-2014, 12:24 PM
Marvellous! How refreshing!

02-02-2014, 11:54 PM
Lovely surreal paintings, original and well done:)
