POSITIVE EXPOSURE Connects August 26

We are BEYOND excited to have a conversation with internationally-renowned artist, David Marchi, tomorrow on #FacebookLIVE at 2:00 PM EST!!!!!

David’s passion for painting was the direct result of a broken back from a boating accident in 2015.

Prior to this, David never painted.

In 2019, he was diagnosed by Dr. Darold Treffert with Acquired Savant Syndrome. This is where dormant savant skills emerge after a spinal or brain injury or disease in previously non-disabled persons.

Today, David’s life is his painting.

He is currently studying under Larry Poons and Peter Bonner at the Art Students League in New York City and

has traveled to Hamburg, Berlin, Paris, Sao Paulo and London to paint with other artists.

His work is collected world-wide and is currently being critiqued by Pulitzer prize and New York Magazine art critic, Jerry Saltz.

Through his art, he supports Positive Exposure, The Human Rights Campaign, and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
