David Peterson was born in 1979 in Grand Rapids and received his BFA from Center for Creative Studies, Detroit, in 2001.
He is inspired by product design, graphic design, and architecture. ‘If I see an amazing new sneaker that someone is wearing, a design for an ad in a magazine, or an incredible new building, I immediately start figuring out how I can make a work out of this inspiration,’ he says.
During his art process, he feels as if he is analyzes the perceptual elements of his observation, deconstructing its perceptual elements and then reconstructing these elements in a new composition. This calls upon very basic principles and elements of design and leads to a precise art object which he believes to exist perfectly with its own system of rules.
His work has been exhibited in New York.
