"I like to blend elements of science and technology in contrast to nature - exploring patterns, stages, and flow - using color and vintage botanicals and imagery such as an old space suit - reaching toward the future. My work stems from my imagination and subconscious, and so it is growing in itself - constantly evolving. Such is life."
David Krovblit (aka KROVBLIT --- KRO(crow)-V-BLIT) is a Canadian visual artist in Southern California. He worked professionally as an award-winning commercial photographer for nearly two decades before trading his illustrious career to fulfill his dreams of creating art and surfing daily.
Krovblit borrows imagery from vintage books and magazines to build contemporary collages rooted in historical pop culture. The asymmetrical layers of his images explore nature, life, death, science fiction, mythology, consumerism, and consumption.
David´s techniques are ever evolving and progressive, combining traditional and new methods. He favors a digital-analog process that begins in photoshop - using it to concept and sketch - a kind of maquette that ultimately becomes his guide to create the final hand-cut collage. He prints the whole collage to any scale, cuts all the layers by hand, then re-assembles and glues them onto custom birch panels. A coat of resin seals the work and adds dimension.
His work has been shown in numerous North American galleries and juried exhibitions and is held in many private collections in Europe, Asia, The United States, and Canada.
