Artist Bio


David Banegas




David Banegas, a South American naturally born artist, began his artistic journey at a very young age. At a mere 11 years old he had his first art gallery showing of his collective works in Campo Grande, Brazil. Painting was easy as he created oil paintings using a variety of brush techniques. Self portraits and images in their actual likeness were his main focus. At age 12, he painted a self portrait of Bolivian President Hugo Banzer and sent it to him. Fortuitously this gift awarded him the opportunity to study privately with Masaiko Fujjita, Old Master Art Teacher from Japan. During his 2 year apprenticeship, David mastered paintings of landscapes, florals and buildings using unique brush techniques.

It was not until his teenage years that David started to create his own style. Today his works combine, whether they are abstract, traditional or contemporary, a variety of textures and paints, the vivid colors of his youth with just a touch of modern Miami living.
