Erotic art exhibit: David Zalben - Portrait © Johanna Syrén


David’s family moved often when he was young, making it hard to make friends, so he passed the time impersonating his favorite comedians and making pencil drawings of celebrity faces as Al Pacino and Woody Allen. But it was photography for which he had a passion, even at the age of 9 David clicked away with an old rangefinder his uncle gave him. So as time passed he focused solely on photography, and then worked as a professional photographer in advertising. Based out of Chicago David won many accolades and awards for his establishing the ‘selective focus’ technique. After a time of transformation he turned to painting which later included bending wire into sculpture.

Now he lives and works in Miami Beach and is an artist-in-resident at the Artcenter/SF.
