About David Leblanc

Artistís Biography
David J. Leblanc

A wide-eyed fascination with comic books since I was a boy generated a passion for the genre that drives my considerable Abstract Expressionist paintings today. Comic books fueled my early love for art and reading. After struggling for many years with how to integrate this boyhood passion in to my paintings, I stumbled upon a book comprised of Action Comics covers featuring Superman from the 1930ís and 1940ís. The book became the inspiration for my signature Action series combining the elements of Abstract Expressionism and the Pop Art elements of comic books.

My arts education took shape at UMass/ Dartmouth where I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from 1985-89. However, my desire to create comics evolved into a love for painting. I studied and practiced Abstract Expressionism, Germany Expressionism, and Pop Art during those developing years. The works of Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Jackson Pollack, Willem DeKooning, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, but most notably the works of Franz Kline inspired my vision and continue to influence my work.

I painted my first notable abstract works in my final year at UMass/Dartmouth. These bold black and white paintings of wide bold brush strokes, drips and splatters pointed me in the direction of Kline and Abstraction Expressionism.

After leaving school I worked sporadically for many years and earned a Masters degree in Education. In the summer of 2004, I seized the opportunity to paint a mural at the health club I attended. With the successful completion of the mural of the vineyards of Tuscany, my desire to paint was revived, but I needed a place to work away from home. After making several inquires for studio space, I was made aware of the launching of a new arts community in Lowell at Western Avenue. Soon I became a founding member of the growing Western Avenue Studios community. I maintain a studio there to this day while I prepare my body of work to pursue my career as a working painter.
