David Green has been sculpting for 40 years but has been involved in the art world since he was a child. Born in Detroit, Green was introduced to art and artists at an early age by his grandmother who was a talented painter. After college he began to study art history, drawing and sculpture and apprenticed himself to local artists who helped him develop his skills. Later, since there were no local stone carvers in the area, he utilized the masters as his instructors by compiling a library so he could study their photographs, analyze their techniques and apply it to his body of work.
David’s best teacher has been experience and his work continues to grow based these strong foundations. Each unique piece is charged with a sense of life and purpose. Even his most abstract works are inspired by organic forms.
Throughout his career, his concepts have been expressed in wood, stone and bronze. Recent works have been in imported marbles and alabaster and can be found in many private and select public collections.
