Artist Bio
Artist:  David Dieter
Biography:  In 2006 - 07, San Francisco emerging artist, David W. Dieter, traveled the world to explore the concept of 'Return to Pangaea' - the human race unifying together faster due to technology, migration and the cross-pollination of cultures. His recent paintings utilize dance as a metaphor to illustrate 'Pangaea Swing'. He is influenced by the human form in classical and contemporary dance and its relationship to its environment. He draws inspiration from local and international dancers in their natural and unnatural settings. David's art is mixed media utilizing acrylics, paper, pastels, wood and collage in his paintings while exploring form, movement, emotion and the relationship of dancers to each other and the world around them. He combines traditional dance with new forms creating a hybrid style.

David has been painting since primary school and displayed his art at an early age at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts as well as the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. He has displayed his art globally in Italy, Thailand, the USA and China. He attended UCLA, UC Irvine and Art Center College of Design and holds 2 degrees in Fine Art and Art History. He has instructed at the San Francisco Academy of Art and currently lives and works at his studio in Shanghai.
