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.
