David Ball Collage

About Me


I am a fine artist working in San Francisco, CA.  Additionally, I teach Illustration at the Academy of Art University.

My Medium


My work consists of a mixture of collage, acrylic, and colored pencil on wood panel. Occasionally, I work on Arches 140 lb. hot-press cotton rag paper.

My Inspiration

My work begins with  expressionistic, non-representational brush strokes and then grows from there.

 Each piece begins with expressionistic, abstract brushstrokes used as both base and inspiration for the completed image. My work is influenced by both classical and modernist ideals.
