David Datuna is a Smithsonian-recognized artist focused on the convergence of art and social consciousness. Datuna’s signature technique is a network of positive and negative optical lenses
suspended over a large-scale layered, collaged and painted image. The mixed media palette often includes photography, newspaper articles, magazine clippings, paint and color. The prismatic surface both hides and reveals the work below, while the lenses symbolize individual identity, illusion, perception, fragmentation and unification.
Portraits, flags and icons are recurring themes. Datuna’s artwork is a political, cultural and commercial commentary on our current collective consciousness. David Datuna exhibits widely in the US, Europe and Asia, and is well represented in important private collections worldwide.
