Oil and Acrylic Original Artwork
By David L. Fulton
About the Artist
David is a visual artist from Virginia Beach, VA, now residing in Washington DC. He regards art as a personal journey into one’s spirit and imagination. At an early age, he gained attention of family and peers with his God given ability to draw. This ability was fostered and developed throughout his adolescence, leading up through his early teenage years. After graduating from Green Run High School in Va Beach, VA, he attended Hampton University where he crossed Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising.
As God’s way would have it, he would later embrace his calling as a painter. Wanting to experiment with his creativity, he purchased a canvas, set of brushes, and a set acrylic paints to create a picture to hang in his home. What followed was the discovery of a new passion and way of expression for him.
David started sharing his works in Charlotte, NC, where he resided for 9 years prior to moving to Washington. His paintings have been featured on walls of local galleries and prestigious museums in Charlotte such as the Harvey B. Gantt Center. He has participated in and HAS earned awards at several juried art shows and has auctioned off several original works for several worthy causes such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
