> DESCRIPTION

David Grigsby explores the urban landscape in his paintings, many of which focus on the unique iconography of Southern California, where the artist has lived most of his life. He finds inspiration in the familiar, nondescript elements of the city and suburbs - the sidewalks and strip malls, traffic signs and billboards.  When asked to describe his style of painting, Grigsby says he would call himself simply a 'realist', as opposed to a 'photorealist'.  "Although my paintings are based on photographic references, I often alter the original source material considerably in order to arrive at a compositional arrangement that suits me.  Maybe you could also call me a 'minimalist', because I'm always looking for ways to eliminate elements that are not essential to the overall composition."    

 A member of the Pasadena Society of Artists, Grigsby is a regular contributor to their group exhibitions and juried events, as well as other individual and group shows in the L.A. area.  His paintings are owned by a number of corporate and private collectors worldwide.
