David Spence

About the Artist

David Spence was born in a small coal-mining town in West Virginia and grew up in Bristol, Virginia. Much of his free time was spent studying sculptures, paintings and drawings at the MOMA, the Metropolitan and other nearby Museums, and the galleries of Sotheby’s and Christy’s auction houses, which provided him to carefully examine the many world-famous artworks; he learned artist’s methods and materials used in their painting, drawing and sculptures.
