David’s wall paintings are so it’ll take more than just a second glance to figure out they’re paintings. David Jon Kassan is a well-known contemporary American painter whose life-sized realistic paintings combine figurative subjects with abstract backgrounds. According to him, “my effort to constantly learn to document reality with a naturalistic, representational painting technique allows for pieces to be inherent contradictions; paintings that are both real and abstract.”. He now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
