Adonis David was born in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii on May 27th, 1994. He is a new generation artist who belongs to an esteemed family of artists. His grandfather is master carver Joe David, his great uncle is accomplished artist George David and his father Douglas David is considered one of the foremost next generation of master artists of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Adonis has spent many years working under his father; assisting with carving and painting and learning about Nuu-chah-nulth cultural traditions and stories that impact his life and artistic development. Four years ago, this one-on-one mentoring propelled Adonis to explore his own artwork in the media of original painting concentrating on using acrylic on paper. His imagery is culturally significant and speaks to a traditional Nuu-chah-nulth form line and design element which is whimsical and uplifting.
Adonis is well on his way to expressing his cultural knowledge and roots through his light and colorful imagery and with the support from his family will certainly gain a strong following both locally and internationally.
