David Paul Kay
David Paul Kay is a New York City-based self-taught artist and muralist. His art practice is informed by his upbringing in the former Republic of Georgia and the tension between the ideals of the former Soviet Union and Western democracy. In 2008, David fled from conflict-ridden Georgia to New York, where he was inspired by the influential works of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. David’s work garnered attention through his social media following, and in 2012 he participated in his first group exhibition followed by several group and solo shows in New York, Paris, and Dubai.
David painted his first mural, HK52, on the rooftop of a pre-war building in Midtown Manhattan, which then went viral.
