The Art Historian said:
Born in 1965 in Cannes, France, David Dalla Venezia has developed a unique language tectically and poetically, where the study and deepening of the figure represent the expressive backbone and comunicative code key. Moving between tradition and modernity, there are two opposin and more specific cultural references from which David Dalla Venezia's painting was ispired by, and from where they have emancipated:
the first is the so-called Lowbrow or Pop Surrealism, a popular moviment, of lower level, conceived in the late seventies underground environments of the West Coast (to whichi certain works of David must be brought back, such as the illustration of album covers of Avion Travel and 12 paintings, made on the palisades of Venice in duet with Hiroshi Daikoku between 1987 and 1989). The second, highest in profile, draws its subsequent psychoanalysis investigations of Freud and Jung, and the philosophical speculation of Schopenhauer, Nietszche even Severino. To investigate the unconscious and the emerge through the pictorial representation with some possible answers, at the same time offering a vision of things and the world where the dream is entangled with reality, and fiction is repeated, make David Dalla Venezia'a painting to operate two doubled levels: aesthetic-narrative and philosophical-metaphysical.
