David Flitner

David Flitner has been making his living as an oil painter for over 30 years and considers himself on a lifetime journey of art exploration. He believes that within each artist there is a calling to tell a visual story; painters need to express themselves on canvas. Landscapes have always been David’s first artistic love. He was a founding member of the Central Arizona Backpackers Association and backpacked in Arizona for over 15 years, deepening his appreciation and knowledge of the Arizona outback.
In his painting of a landscape, David internalizes the feeling of the scene to then make its translation into mood, color, and light. He believes that one can paint abstract concepts, like ‘quiet’ and ‘peace,’ into a painting to enrich the viewer’s experience. Dramatic light, a peaceful space, and a vastness to the depth of field all combine as romantic elements that distinguish his paintings.
David studied at the University of Arizona and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He’s been represented by many fine art galleries and has taught, demonstrated, judged art shows and lead critiques for many Arizona venues and local art leagues. David loves to teach and pass on the information he’s acquired over the years.
