Day of the Dead Art with a Distinctive Lowbrow Style

David Lozeau has a quirky, character-driven painting style that wraps Day of the Dead iconography in a Wild West aesthetic, measures historical accuracy against Lowbrow absurdity, and blends fine art technique with illustrative humor to reveal his unique perspective on life, death, and all the gory stuff in between.

David layers acrylics, gouache, and enamel to create vibrant, unforgettable paintings with interesting narratives and tight line work and then builds his own custom wood frames to complete his vision for each piece.

His Day of the Dead art turns the annual celebration on its ear through his use of bold colors, exaggerated features, and impeccable details. DLo's Wild West art is rooted in American cowboy gunslinger lore where there was only a very fine line between a marshal and an outlaw. David's Lowbrow art pays homage to everything from Greek mythology to the kustom kulture hot rod scene. And his Oceanic art is anything but typical, depicting steampunk divers, tiki-hoarding octopus, and underwater robot invasions.

David Lozeau shows his art in galleries on three continents, collaborates with Disney, Fender, and Harley-Davidson, is a member of the artist guild at the Spanish Village Art Center in Balboa Park, and is featured in countless magazines and books.
