David Hansel at Artists at Gulf Place
DescriptionDavid is a self-taught artist starting at age 5yrs old, he graduated from drawing to painting quickly. The beach and all that it encompasses gives him inspiration. His work captures the vivid colors and material aspects of beach life. Each unique piece reminds us of what we love about the beach. The ocean waves, trees, sea-life, surfboards, and bicycles tell the story of our experiences here. See David's work at the Artists of Gulf Place.
