The main focus of David Chieppo's work is a highly-individual figurative painting. The small panel paintings seem to have been produced swiftly, with a broad brush and a flowing ductus; the technique is totally subordinated to the content. David Chieppo reflects both on everyday events and on political and social issues. The artist uses as his point of departure media images which, as motifs, take on a certain autonomy in the course of the painterly transposition.
David Chieppo, born in the USA in 1973, has lived and worked in Zurich since 1998.
