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
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

visions to a new audience.
