Born in Dallas, Texas, David Potwin is the oldest of three children. Potwin first put brush to canvas at 8 years old. He travelled extensively throughout his life and has had a variety of art related positions from a fine arts publisher in New York City to a special effects painter at Astroworld Amusement Park in Houston, Texas.

“I describe my style as “Conceptual Realism”.

“Painting is a synthesis that considers the myriad aspects of human awareness, expressed in visual form. Melding together philosophy, physics, sociology, emotion, mysticism, and eroticism with craftmanship.”

“My goal is to create a body of work that is mullti-layered and resonates with common man as well as the initiated. And I’d like to find nice homes for my “children” as well."
“Thank you for visiting, and I do appreciate any comments, critiques, remarks!” – H David Potwin

David is incarcerated and teaches art to fellow inmates. He does not have internet access, and I keep up a few websites for him. I will pass on your comments to David, they mean the world to him, literally. Thank you so much for visiting and please come back often!
