Acrylic on canvas
David Dellagi was born in 1970 in Copenhagen where he lives and works as a visual artist. Between 1997 and 1992 he trained with the multifaceted Lithuanian painter Evgenii Brukman, a pioneer of a new direction in three-dimensional, volumetric and transparent painting.
Having explored various artistic mediums such as painting, sculpture, animation and film, his work today focuses on the concretisation of collage through pictorial practice. David Dellagi’s practice aims primarily to “sculpt with light and colour to create a dynamic, three-dimensional abstract universe that has some optical connection to ﬁgure”. Through the intricate combinations of geometric polygons the artist explores the notion of dynamism on the canvas. The starting point of each painting is always the creation of an analogue collage that Dellagi subsequently manipulates through various digital and painterly processes.
