Painting to David Griffin is more than a vocation; it's a calling to satisfy a deep desire to speak in a visual medium. He wants to paint with an attitude and a passion for a lifestyle uncommon, but not forgotten--the American cowboy "who sacrifices so much to get to do what he does best."
David’s heritage with the American cowboy and the West is a real one, established and nurtured by his paternal grandfather the original L.M."Rip" Griffin, a cowboy on the Matador Ranch 1908-1920, whose life story continues to inspire him.
Educated at Texas Tech University, New York Illustrators School and two years studying with Bernie Fuchs, Mark English and Bob Peak, David has exhibited his work at Coor’s National Western Art Exhibit 2010-2013; Settler’s West, Trailside Galleries, Wyoming; American Art Classic and OPA National Exhibit. He was part of a two man show at the National Ranching Heritage Museum in 2012. His art has appeared in Cowboys and Indians, Western Art Collector and Dallas Morning News. davidgriffinstudio.com
