The paintings from David Dellagi (b. 1970) showcases no easy task. They are a visual spectacle which has many layers of meaning underneath there appealing exterior.
The calaidoscopic framework brings many of us back to the childhood memoiries where we could escape the real world by focusing on the the dreamlike fiction before our eyes, looking through the magical lens.
In a similar manner David creates these paintings with a reference to photos, cut-outs and collage material. The end result is a altered image on the canvas which keeps us curious and amazed.
David Dellagi’s artistic carreer embodies a remarkably rich and diverse body of work over the last decades, ranging from painting, sculpture and collage to film.
He made his artistic debut at The Artist’s Autumn Exhibition (KE), in Copenhagen in 1993. Since then, he has exhibited widely in his country of residence Denmark, in places such as Skive Kunstmuseum, Rønnebæksholm, Kunstbygningen i Vrå, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Danish Graphics Association, as well as abroad in New York, London, Los Angeles, Stockholm and Mexico City.
