Welcome to the weird, colorful, creative world of Day of the Dead artist David Lozeau. This section provides some cool videos of his art commissions, custom tattoo designs, and live paintings, as well as his guitar collaboration with Fender and his feature on the HiFi channel's show "That's Art!?". So feel free to explore the methods behind the madness!
But before you dive into the videos below, here are answers to his most popular questions about paint, media, and style...
What media (type of paint) does David Lozeau use?
David uses enamel for his tight line work, which is basically unheard of in the world of fine art. After seeing a pinstriping demonstration at a hot rod event 12 years ago, David developed his own style by layering acrylics, gouache, and enamel to create unique, unforgettable art that puts a modern, Lowbrow twist on traditional Dia de los Muertos iconography.
What kinds of brushes does David Lozeau use?
David's setup is like that of an old-timey sign painter crossed with a fine artist. He uses synthetic fiber brushes for his acrylic background and gouache underpainting and then scriptliners for the enamel details.
What do you call David Lozeau's style of art?
David blends Day of the Dead, Lowbrow, Wild West, Kustom Kulture, Tiki, and Tattoo elements, layers opposing mediums like gouache, acrylics, and enamel, and mixes fine art techniques with an illustrative style to produce something no one else is doing. His particular style doesn’t have a name yet!
