about David:

David’s unique process makes for some amazing visual results. Before adding any pigment, Graff starts by gilding a panel with a combination of gold, silver, or copper leaf. Once the delicate panels are prepared, David adds layer after layer of transparent color glazes. By controlling the reactions of the pigments against the gilding, Graff masterfully pushes and pulls a scene into view. High sheen resin is slowly poured across the piece to seal the finished layers underneath in the final step. The never ending work to perfect this process has drawn much attention and allowed him to quickly gain a following among art reviewers and collectors.
