David Syre is an American artist whose large-scale acrylic paintings, drawings, sculptures, and art installations, are inspired by travel, the subconscious mind, and nature.
Syre is self-taught, creates artwork at an accelerated pace and embraces bold lines and brave colors. Archetypal symbols and numbers often appear as images alongside words referencing the moment of creation. He is an artist whose world-view is informed by personal transformation.
David Syre´s work is witness to his evolving psyche and internal dialogue; it is spontaneous and manifests as an intuitive offering. The search for spirituality has marked his artistic research and life’s journey. Syre has studied yoga for twenty years, is an active member of the Burning Man community, and is devoted to forging a path towards a universal union and truth. David Syre incessantly draws and paints, be it in his studio, during his many journeys, in public places, always exploring new topics and evolving his artistic practice. His working method is almost ritualistic, creating many pieces on a daily basis and building upon an endless array of subjects, including his Ona Spirit Series and Soul Maps, an ongoing series of travel- related drawing journals.
He is currently also working on several interdisciplinary projects including a set of sculptures, a large-scale art installation and a 150-mile trail, The Peace Trail, located at the southernmost extreme of the South American Continent.
David Syre has exhibited internationally since 2018, including Nice, France (May 2018), Santa Fe, New Mexico (September 2018) and Buenos Aires, Argentina (November 2018). Upcoming exhibitions include Gallery Syre, Bellingham Washington (April 2019), Werkkunst Gallery, Hamburg, Germany (July 2019) and Copenhagen Design House & Copenhagen Art Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark.
