David Abbott

"David B. Abbott's work throughout the 1990's and into the new millenium addressed contemporary political & social issues earning him the nickname of "social realist". The themes in his paintings are as varied as the rise & fall of the religious right in the US, political volatility & unfolding events around the globe and gay & lesbian politics in the wake of the HIV crisis."

"David was born and raised in the Boston area and educated at the Massachusetts College of Art. Moving to New York City, David's large color fieldwork caught the attention of the interior design director at Lord & Taylor's who used only his paintings for the walls of it's model rooms exhibit."
