About David Grossmann

Art has been a con­stant pres­ence in David Gross­mann’s life. Draw­ing was his fa­vorite ac­tiv­i­ty as a child, so he spent much of the time ex­plor­ing his imag­i­na­tion through pen­cil and paper. David’s fam­i­ly con­sis­tent­ly en­cour­aged his love of art, and some of his first art lessons were from his grand­moth­er, who taught him to use oil paints when he was ten years old.

A love of the out­doors has also been a life-long com­pan­ion for David. He lived in Chile until he was four­teen, and the beau­ty of the tow­er­ing Andes, the vast ocean, the bar­ren deserts, and fer­tile val­leys still flood his mem­o­ries. When he left Chile and moved to Col­orado, the beau­ty of the Rocky Moun­tains brought a touch of fa­mil­iar­i­ty through the time of tran­si­tion. At that point, David con­tin­ued to study art and also began tak­ing art-re­lat­ed jobs, in­clud­ing paint­ing com­mis­sions and a se­ries of il­lus­tra­tions for a pub­lish­ing com­pa­ny.

He went on to earn de­grees in busi­ness and Span­ish, and then at­tend­ed the Col­orado Acad­e­my of Art in Boul­der. It was at the Acad­e­my that David had his first class in plein air (out­door) paint­ing. He re­spond­ed im­me­di­ate­ly to the chal­lenges of this new method and the way it fit per­fect­ly with his love for the out­doors. David’s ded­i­ca­tion to land­scape paint­ing kept grow­ing, even­tu­al­ly lead­ing him to study with renowned artist Jay Moore.

David con­tin­ues to paint land­scapes from all over Col­orado, the west­ern Unit­ed States, and wher­ev­er else his trav­els may take him. No mat­ter what lo­ca­tion in­spires his work, David’s paint­ings are noted for their un­der­stat­ed sense of tran­quil­i­ty: “I like to think of my paint­ings as vi­su­al poems. They are sim­pli­fied rhythms of color, light, and shape. On the sur­face they are quiet whis­pers but I hope that they con­vey a depth of emo­tion to any­one who takes the time to stop and lis­ten.”

Liv­ing near the Rocky Moun­tains pro­vides an end­less source of in­spi­ra­tion. The moun­tain peaks, their hid­den depths, the vast­ness of the plains and skies all pro­vide the ori­gins for many of David’s fa­vorite com­po­si­tions. Al­though these in­spi­ra­tions are in­ex­haustible, David also dreams of re­vis­it­ing the land­scapes of his child­hood and of dis­cov­er­ing the beau­ty of places yet un­seen.
