David Zaintz

David Zaintz is a self-taught mixed media artist and painter. He was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1963, and moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1973. For many years, he concentrated his talents in graphic and interior design. His love for collecting Judaic and abstract art, along with his appreciation of New Mexican landscapes & folk art, were all big influences. Zaintz's paintings represent his own interpretation of Abstract Expressionism, including portraits and figures, in addition to southwestern landscapes and urban aerial views. His art is born from an inner passion to communicate his visions onto canvas. Using vibrant color combinations as well as a black & white palette, his range of work reflects his versatility as an artist. Often the titles of the pieces are derived from the music he listens to while he works. He uses a variety of techniques, painting occasionally with brushes, but mostly with his hands. Described as "whimsical, with a rich balance of brilliant luminescence and depth, expressing both earthly and ethereal elements and textures. They're set with an occasional touch of non-objective realism and symbolism, encouraging ultimate interpretation from the viewer." -Cynthia Cook. Named a Local Treasure in 2012 by the Albuquerque Arts Business Association, Zaintz also became the first recipient of the annual ABQ Pride Outstanding Artist Award in 2015. His art is used for staging in Albuquerque and Santa Fe home shows, has been featured in Albuquerque The Magazine and The Collector's Guide. Zaintz's art is in numerous private collections across the country. Look for one of his paintings to be featured in the upcoming Gary Oldman film, "The Space Between Us."
