About Author

David Blancas

David Blancas was born in Nueva Rosita, Coahuila in northern Mexico and began drawing and painting at an early age. He maintains a multifaceted portfolio of teaching, mentoring, and creating public and private commissions with a specialization in paintings, portraiture, mosaics and murals. “Presently I’m attempting to push the boundaries of my art with my mural projects; nothing accelerates the development of your artistic technique and conceptual capabilities like a large mural project. The multitude of surfaces involved in large community mural project can present a challenge, but the combination of the textures and paint makes for a fun and unpredictable creative process. The completed work is always worth all of the hard work, and most rewarding of all is the positive feedback from the public. The knowledge that you’ve created something that will be a part of the community that will hopefully be around for a long time is very gratifying. “
