Dave Lebow is a representational painter, illustrator, and teacher. He was born and raised in Oklahoma and now lives with his wife, daughter and two cats in Venice, CA. He’s got a wickedly contemporary retro style that recalls the pulp magazines of long ago. He is inspired and interested in imaginative storytelling pictures that evoke an emotional response. He studied privately in New York with Burton Silverman and at the Art Students League with Robert Beverly Hale, David Leffel, Daniel Green, Robert Philipp, and Robert Brackman. Dave has a BFA in Painting from Boston University and an MFA in Experimental Animation from Cal Arts. His work was featured in several exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the La Luz de Jesus Gallery.
