Born in Nabatieh in 1970, David Daoud's passion for art started at an early age. While growing up, he found solace in drawing and painting as a way to express himself. After graduating from the School of Fine Arts and Decorative Arts in Paris, he trained under Charles Auffret, a sculptor mentored by Rodin's students.
Daoud's artworks are a reflection of his deep connection with nature and the timeless beauty of Cave Art. His paintings, influenced by Impressionism, are a spontaneous and assertive expression of his emotions. By exploring themes such as exile, travel, estrangement, nostalgia, absence, and eternity, he brings a humanistic perspective to his work. In his paintings, animals, and humans coexist in harmony, creating a timeless and captivating world.
Daoud's works have been exhibited in prestigious galleries, museums, and cultural venues in Lebanon, Belgium, and France. Two of his paintings are part of the collection of the "Institut du Monde Arabe à Paris," and his painting was chosen by Ibrahim Maalouf for the cover of his album "Levantine Symphony" in 2018.
Daoud's brushstrokes are a symphony of colors, a testament to his passion for nature and Cave Art. His timeless themes and humanistic perspective have woven a tapestry of emotions that have captivated art enthusiasts worldwide. His masterful works have earned him accolades and awards, and his paintings have found a place in the private collections of connoisseurs across the globe. Despite his success, Daoud remains humble, a true artist who is committed to his craft, constantly exploring new themes and techniques to capture the elusive essence of the world around him. His canvas is a reflection of his soul, a poetry of emotions that speaks volumes without words.
