David Humphrey is a New York artist who has been showing his paintings and sculpture internationally since the 1980’s. Occasionally called a Pop Surrealist, his work hybridizes a variety of depiction schemes and idioms to make works charged with psycho-social content and narrative potential. Blind Handshake, an anthology of his art writing, was published last year and includes a wide variety of reviews, essays and curatorial statements. Humphrey has won the Rome Prize, a Guggenheim fellowship and a variety of grants including an NEA and the New York State Council for the Arts among others. Humphrey has exhibited at the McKee Gallery, and Sikkema Jenkins and co in New York, and is currently represented by Fredericks & Freiser, where he will be having an exhibition in the fall of 2012. He received his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and a masters degree from NYU.
