About the Artist
David Lozeau (pronounced Low-zo) is a mid-career painter who creates unique Day of the Dead inspired characters with quirky details and bold lines. In the span of less than a decade, he has shown his works in dozens of galleries on three continents, collaborated with Disney and Harley-Davidson, won multiple awards at fine art exhibitions and been featured in countless magazines and hardcover books.
DLo grew up in rural New Hampshire and earned a graphic art degree. For several years after graduation, he ignored his paints and focused solely on his career, working commercially in print, Web and video production before eventually moving to Southern California and reawakening his long-dormant artistic side. Day of the Dead, hot rod, tattoo, zombie and tiki imagery began to dominate Lozeau’s work. Oils gave way to a unique process of layering enamel on top of gouache and acrylics and no surface was off limits, as he experimented with painting atop a variety of found items, from thrift store artifacts to surfboards to violins to vintage car parts.
Today, you can view David’s unique art at Ian Russell Gallery or see him live painting at art shows and events — or in Balboa Park (where he is a member of the artist guild at the Spanish Village Art Center). He lives in San Diego with his girlfriend and two unruly Boxers who are always getting into his paints.
