“I do my best to remove myself from the process, to make work that is organic and feels as if time itself has eroded everything, leaving behind what is most resilient and important.”

David M. Esquivel

David M. Esquivel is a self-taught painter based in Aurora, Illinois. His work has been featured in publications like Ballpit Magazine and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. 

David’s paintings of geometric landscapes coalesce shapes and patterns to create harmony in their different worlds. This relationship between each element is at the heart of David’s work. His surrealist juxtaposition of different forms acts as a metaphor for us as humans living amongst each other and within the universe. While keeping the individuality of each object/body, David creates a landscape where the objects interact freely with each other to illustrate the love that holds the balance of nature together. Rather than planning out each painting, David’s inspiration comes from whatever the first mark is. We invite you to join us, not just to look upon the elements, but to float throughout the world that is David’s painting.
