About the Artist:
David Natale is a Los Angeles based artist focused on fantasy, science fiction and horror genres with interests in imaginative figure and creature design. His paintings are primarily done in oils, acrylics and graphite.
David’s love of nature and particularly botany is a strong influence in his artwork.
