David Syre is an American artist whose large-scale acrylic paintings, drawings, sculptures, and art installations are inspired by travel, his 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.
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. Syre is a prolific artist. His working methods are almost ritualistic. He creates many pieces every day on an endless array of subjects – always exploring new topics and always perfecting his craft.
Syre is currently working on several interdisciplinary projects including a large-scale art installation titled We Are One to be located at the start of The Peace Trail, a 150-mile trail he is constructing in Tierra del Fuego at the southernmost extreme of the South American Continent.
David Syre has exhibited internationally, including Nice, France (May 2018), Santa Fe, New Mexico (September 2018), Buenos Aires, Argentina (November 2018), and most recently, Bellingham, Washington (April 2019) for the opening of Gallery Syre. Upcoming exhibitions include New York, NY (June 2019), Hamburg, Germany (July 2019), and Copenhagen, Denmark (September 2019). The opening of The Peace Trail and We Are One is anticipated for December 2020.
