David is an award-winning Spanish painter and multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Valencia. A devout Catholic, he received the Pontifical Academy Award in 2012 from Pope Benedict XVI for his contribution to the development of Christian humanism in contemporary society. David is currently developing artistic projects in the United States with the support of the President-Director of the Musee du Louvre, the Director of the National Gallery of London and the Pontifical Council of Culture in the Vatican. Since 1999 he has worked with an international group of artists on aesthetics projects for liturgical spaces around the world.
“People see a landscape, and it excites them. They feel an aesthetic pleasure, regardless of whether they understand the mathematics behind that beauty. As artists, somehow, we perceive those laws and transform them into curves, lines, colors…Art is a relationship of forms, textures and colors. At the same time art is an interpersonal relationship—a dialogue ultimately with God.” – David Lopez
