ABOUT

David Arms is an artist, graphic designer, illustrator and animator.

Since 2012, he has been creating collages from repurposed magazines and comic books in his Brooklyn studio.

David believes that it is the artists' responsibility to provide long-lasting intricate visions worthy of contemplation. 

Each piece is handmade, replete with narrative symbolism to tell complex stories that often involve otherworldly beings. 


In addition to fine art, David loves designing print & digital marketing assets to help others define their brand's visual identity. 

Currently he is learning more about character animation and motion graphics.

In the future he hopes to host his first solo exhibition at a prestigious gallery and to develop an animated series.
