David Amico is a professor of art at Claremont Graduate University and an accomplished Los Angeles-based abstract painter. For more than 40 years, Amico has embraced an untied, expressionist approach to abstract painting, and this approach has allowed him to explore painting in a most unrestrictive and innovative manner.
Amico has established himself as one of L.A.’s most influential contemporary painters. His first major group exhibition was held at P.S.1 in New York in 1976, and his first major solo exhibition was held in that same year at Newspace Gallery in Los Angeles. Throughout his career, Amico has been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States as well as in Singapore, Switzerland, and Mexico.
