David Shingler

David Shingler

David Shingler was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida. His love for art and his


creative ability were apparent at an early age. David’s passion for natural beauty


and creativity lead him to pursue art school. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Art


degree from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2007 with a major in sculpture and


glass blowing. Shingler graduated first in his class and received the highly prized


First Agnes Gund Traveling Scholarship award for international travel. David’s focus


in art school was building kinetic machines that responded to forces of nature and


also perfecting his glass blowing skills. Upon graduating, David shifted his


concentration to oil painting. Shingler has exhibited work in Cleveland, Cincinnati,


Michigan, New Jersey, Oklahoma, North Carolina and Colorado. In 2013, David was


named to Southwest Art magazine's "21 under 31" list of the best new artists in the


country. David works with residential clients as well as established commercial


clients including Healthcare, Law Firms and Oil and Gas. He currently works full


time as a painter and resides with his wife, Grace, between Denver, Colorado and


Raleigh, North Carolina. Inspired broadly by the dramatic landscapes of the West, all


the way to the cotton fields and ocean vistas of the East coast, David integrates these


influences into his own personal technique and painting style. Shingler’s oil


paintings are not photorealistic, but they create a sense of depth and energy that


make viewers feel they are there. Shingler paints a diverse subject matter consisting


primarily of landscapes, but also including cityscapes and figurative works.


Specializing in painting oil on wood panels, which he personally builds, David


creates unique and impressive images that are indeed one of a kind.
