We are very excited that David Lantz is one of our 30×30: 1989-90 exhibition artists.
Some words from the artist:
“I’m an Illustrator who loves a good story. I was born and raised in Iowa, got my creative roots in the San Francisco Bay Area and have been country hopping since mid-2017. I’m obsessed with good stories and love to meet people with different experiences from my own. My Wacom tablet, my paints and my sketchbook are my preferred tools and I love exploring new styles and techniques to tell those stories best. I’ve been known to look for boots in Milan, spend the night with farmers in rural India and enjoy a cigar in Tokyo. I’m often a stranger but never for long. Although I’m a digital nomad at the moment, my junk is in a box in a basement in Oakland, CA so I’ll definitely be coming back to the Bay Area. I’ve had the privilege to work with startups, Fortune 500 companies, breweries, design agencies, non-profits, bands, comic book artists and my mom (featured extensively in the Lantz Family Refrigerator Gallery). Check out some of my selected clients below. Want to know a bit more about my story? Check out my Instagram to see all my paints, sketches, Polaroids and fun projects I work on from time to time”.
Working on Jacob’s Ladder (1990)
Mourning his dead child, a haunted Vietnam War veteran attempts to uncover his past while suffering from a severe case of dissociation. To do so, he must decipher reality and life from his own dreams, delusions, and perceptions of death.
