At the age of 13, he began painting to win the heart of a young girl. Since then, David Silvah has taken the artistry of the traditional Mexican painting very seriously; sharing his work in a revolutionary, political, and social context of the past and the present.
The work of this young Zacatecano painter, now living in the city of Rosarito, forces the spectator to turn and observe with profound interest. When observing David Silvah’s paintings, we find Don Quixote’s with a look of surprise, of anguish or of wonder.
We see free gestures, dynamic vitality, and Quixote’s that emerge from their meditations, not always optimistic about the condition of humanity. David Silvah, in his relentless effort to express himself, reunites Zapatas, Cristos, Villas, and Don Quixote at the same table. He uses narrative and literary content, as well as many colorful artistic effects, allowing us to enjoy the originality in his fine works.
Each work is a synthesis in which the painter gives free reign to his imagination, without being judged by other different and present pictorials. This allows David Silvah to approach his painting with absolute artistic freedom.
