David Sandum – I paint emotion

David is self-taught, though he studied art history at the University of Utah. He see’s himself mainly as a colorist – and expressionist. Feelings, energy, and emotions are very much key to his work. The people he paints are never real portraits, “but inner portraits.” Scandinavian influences are Munch, Karsten, and Sparre. Other influences are The German Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) movement (1911-1914) spearheaded by Kandinsky, and continental masters such as Gaugain, Van Gogh, Bonnard and Matisse.
