It has been a long time since David "Ds7" Taylor has experienced the thrill of viewing his "graffiti" on the subways of Boston. Unauthorized art in public places at 15 years old was the beginning of Ds7 aerosol art. Painting on clothes was his 1st art job.
At 20 years old while studying art @ Museum School of Fine Arts Boston, Ds7's art was displayed at a gallery on Newbury St. Boston, which sold and was noticed by a hair salon owner whom hired Ds7 to paint 6 floor to ceiling portraits. From there Ds7 started his career as a artist and found new love of portraits. Ds7's inspirations come from within, music, film, many travels, associate artisans of their trade and "graffiti". Ds7 technics and styles are original, mastering each technic and or style that he creates then moving on to another to master, repeating that over years. Known amongst his peers as one of the 1st original aerosol portrait artists in Boston, Ds7 has also mastered other mediums of painting portrait.
Throughout the years Ds7 has learned to manipulate his art into different styles. Currently Ds7 is taking his art to new levels by using tools and patterns to manipulate his work, but keeping as much freehand style manipulation as possible. By taking his time, staying focused, pushing his skill to the limits. Ds7 hopes to create an image that captures a feeling that is then manipulated, causing the viewer to dig deep with your eyes. Although some of his paintings could be painted in days, Ds7 takes weeks to complete one painting due to the style and technic Ds7 has added to his painting to make it original and unique.
Through the years needs of clients grew which led Ds7 to other artist talents such as; faux painter, interior designer, decorator, design and build to name a few.
