Through the language of art, David Krilov explores the liminal spaces in life, the time between the “what was” and the “next.” These are places of transition, waiting, and mystery. It is where all transformation takes place if we learn from it and let it form us.
To this end, he uses a couple of techniques and styles. With his modern abstract art, his technique consists of multiple layers of paint, gestures, and mediums where the painting emerges through cycles of creation, destruction, and re-creation. With his combination of abstract and street art, he uses a technique that incorporates various media forms and processes both digital and physical.
With a major in Geography, a minor in Fine Art from the University of Delaware, and with a Masters of Arts in Religion from Liberty Theological Seminary, the three backgrounds interact to come through in many of the concepts that motivate his paintings. His major influences include Jules Olitski, Wasilly Kandinsky, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Clyfford Still, Barnett Newman, Gerhard Richter, Makoto Fujimura, Sam Lock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and William Turner.
He currently lives with his wife and kids in the beautiful log-cabin, biking, and lake community of Medford Lakes, New Jersey, and has participated in a number of local exhibitions, as well as having his work shipped to collectors around the world.
