David D - Virginia Caricature Artists
From French-Huguenot stock by way of New England and New Mexico, David is a prolific and many-faceted artist. As a young man he roamed the great American west, driving old cars or motorcycles and often hitchhiking to discover the greatness of our country and its multi-various population, drawing caricatures in localities along the way both to improve his art and support his travels. Since adulthood he has traveled extensively in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe, studying the art and caricature techniques of both New World and Old World masters. Some of his more sophisticated and esoteric techniques he learned from simple Mexican peasants, Italian painters, and from Arabic speaking Muslim artists that draw caricatures on the streets of Paris. His art school was Mexico, the American Southwest, and France. His academic art education consists of a BA in fine art from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
Mr. Delano currently lives in Vienna, Virginia, is married and has two teenage sons. He shows his work at galleries in Washington DC, Fairfax County Virginia and Los Alamos, New Mexico, and does caricatures in seven states and Washington, DC.
