Profotos Member Biography - David Houston


David Houston was born in Washington D.C. in 1947. Monumental nudes were a normal sight in Washington at that time.

MAD Magazine, N.C. Wyeth illustrations, movie poster montage and hot rod artist Big Daddy Roth were early influences. At Bard College David received a rigorous inside view of modernist non-objective art, studying with Pat de Gogorza, who was close to Hans Hoffman. In balance was the work as assistant to Wynn Chamberlain, a friend of Andy Warhol. David also painted highway billboards and was assistant editor on "Other Voices", which was nominated for an Academy Award.

David has done extensive theater work for Grateful Dead, performing and making parade characters, costumes and videos. David studied butoh and clowning and is currently a performer with Mystic Family Circus. David recently did a show in Las Vegas for Cirque du Soleil Opening Night Gala.

Artist's Statement

For better or worse, my art is the answer to the question, "what would I do if I could do anything I wanted?" I want to make art that a smart twelve year old can "get", that is easy on the art theory. For the last four years I have been working on a stage-lit look, going for more drama, narrative and complex lighting that gives the viewer lots to do. All the effects are "in camera." Well almost all...I wasn't looking for a desk job. I am currently doing more fantasy portraiture and promotional work.
