ABOUT THE ARTIST
David Tobey is a painter and sculptor who has had an active life-long career as a professional violinist and visual artist as well as a music & art teacher. The son of the noted historical painter Alton S. Tobey, in his early years he studied with his father and at the Art Student's League in New York and received his Master's degree in Art from the College of New Rochelle. David is an alumnus of the Juilliard School who was selected in 2004 as one of 100 of their most outstanding alumni, and he is a founding member and violinist with the Westchester Philharmonic Orchestra and many other musical groups.
His art has been commented upon in reviews as a "synaesthetic relationship between abstraction and music . . . the connection between linear and musical rhythms" (NY Times, 3/14/04); " . . .human drama, subconscious imagery, and a playful imagination, all coalesce in paintings and sculpture" (Art in America, 9/07) and his sculpture as having " . . .a unique draftsmanly fluidity in metal, surpassing even that of [Julio] Gonzalez" (Gallery & Studio Magazine, 1/07). "Through his use of vibrant color and his innate musical talents, David stimulates his viewer's senses by allowing them to experience a psychedelic 'mind-manifesting' interpretation of his subject," said Kathleen Masterson, Curator of The White Plains Museum Gallery, where Tobey had a recent solo show March 30th through June 15th, 2011.
David pursues his very active careers in both music & art in his home community of Westchester County, NY and has had more than two dozen solo and group shows of his paintings, prints & sculpture mainly in New York City galleries and in the New York tri-state area, most of which have been benefits for organizations he supports, including The American Cancer Society, The Westchester Philharmonic, The Juilliard School, The Danny Club, The Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle and others.
