About the Artist:
David Natale is an internationally exhibited 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. His paintings portray a shared connection and participation with the natural world that can easily be forgotten in modern life. Perhaps, through a better communion with nature, we might live more empathetic and compassionate lives.
