About the Artist

1982 New York City, United States

David Paul Kay is an American artist born in 1982. Born in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, the artist fled to the United States in 2008 where he developed his black and white style, completely self-taught.

David Paul Kay sees exteriors transformed. Using dynamic lines, he converts the walls and paper into kinetic surfaces. He is the creator of many large-scale murals throughout New York as the roof "HK52" and the walls of the "Ideal glass gallery". He has also participated in many group exhibitions in New York, donated several pieces at charity events and was hosted a personal exhibition on Fire Island, NYC. David Paul Kay’s artworks are now in private collections in the United States, Europe and the Middle East.

Although he is very present and active in his north Manhattan workshop, the artist draws his small formats in the New York subway, inspired by what he likes to call "the real life New York City". The drawings accumulate along paths and are sometimes very diverse as they are a reflection of what is happening in front of him, sometimes the fruit of his subconscious. We then see faces and bodies but also large architectural lines and buildings in distortions. Paul David Kay’s art is a product of his city.
