Narrative Figure Paintings By Davidd Batalon


Where Love Leads
by Davidd Batalon

& on November 6, 2008 from 7 – 11 PM,
and by appointment.
Adults only, please.

Los Angeles artist, Davidd Batalon has a love for narratives. His spellbinding paintings reflect a strong desire to create worlds saturated with intrigue and mystery. With a style influenced by such artists as Paul Cadmus, George Tooker and Thomas Hart Benton, combined with an aesthetic akin to writer Ray Bradbury, Batalon forges his own genre of storytelling replete with elements taken from contemporary life and the mass media.

Batalon's painting has evolved from a style reflecting tension and implied eroticism born of self censorship to a provocative, expansive style animated by the freedoms self awareness and self acceptance bring. As he states, "I've become more comfortable in my own skin."

Extensively exhibited in galleries throughtout Southern California including, Bert Green Fine Arts, Circle Elephant Art, Ghettogloss Gallery, The Etteninger Gallery, The Advocate Gallery and Self-Help Graphics. Flazh!Alley Studio is excited and honored to be the first gallery in the South Bay to bring Mr. Batalon's unique visions to a new audience.
