David Flores is a contemporary artist known for his highly stylized and vibrant paintings.
Born into a multicultural environment in California,
Flores began his career as an artist
using the urban landscape as his canvas.
He quickly gained attention for his iconic imagery
and bold use of color.
His work is heavily influenced by pop culture...
He often incorporates famous iconic portraits and
Americana into his paintings.
He is best known for his instantly recognizable mosaic or segmented style, which formed organically after years of creating skate graphics.
(By the age of 18 he was Internationally published
and creating logos that are still heavily used in the skate industry today.)
and he has been commissioned for public mural projects around the world. He has also been featured in numerous publications and has won several awards for his work.
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) acquired
the artwork of David Flores in 2006,
where it resides in the museums permanent collection.
He participates with a variety of companies to further his catalog. Some of these opportunities have led to collaborations with Barney’s New York, Disney, Oakley, The Olympic Games, Medicom, Stussy, Nike, The Los Angeles Dodgers, The New York Racing Association, The Nelson Mandela Foundation, Equinox, The Mexican Consulate,
and The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
but also socially relevant.

and to inspire a new generation of artists.
