Bio
David Xu was born in China. He started learning drawing and painting when he was ten years old. David graduated from China Academy of Fine Arts (formerly Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts) with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1986. Over the past few decades David has worked as an art editor and graphic designer in a university press, painting art professor of the architecture department in a university.
In 1998 David and his wife and two children moved to Canada. Since then he has worked as a senior architectural illustrator and graphic designer for a major Toronto based architectural design company. His architectural illustrations have won several national and international awards, exhibited and published in China and USA.
Throughout these experiences, however, his desire and passion for realism painting have never faded away. In recent years, David has dedicated himself painting and drawing as long as he can find time, even half an hour or 15 minutes a day. He mainly works on oil and soft pastel. Subjects range from portraiture to landscape and still life.
His works have been selected to national and international juried shows and completions as well as local public shows and won awards

Artistís Statement
Art is part of my life. I draw through observation; I paint from life experiences. Every time I put pencil to paper or brush to canvas, I listen to my heart singing: life is beautiful. I want people viewing my artwork to have the same feeling. I seek to capture the wonderful moments of time and nature with colorful light and shadow, bouncing off each other. Oil and soft pastels are my favorite materials. European Old masters and French Impressionists are major influences. Mother Nature and the beautiful things around me and in my life are great inspirations for me to paint.
