Collection: Griffin, David

“Painting is more than a vocation. My paintings are direct observations, results of a life and heritage spent close to the land, the people, the West. It’s a calling to speak in a visual medium, telling stories, all the time looking West. Portraying this subject is not without its own challenges. Painting is hard work, but I’m committed to communicating the story in a passionate way, with the honesty and vitality the subject deserves.”

Born in 1952, Griffin grew up in Lubbock, Texas. After studying fine art at Texas Tech University, he was invited to participate in the first Illustrators Workshop, New York, where he studied with Bernie Fuchs, Mark English, and Bob Peak. His work was recognized many times by the Illustrators Annual National Show during the 1970s and 1980s. ln 1990, he began to paint professionally full-time.

In addition to being featured in articles in publications such as Cowboys and Indians, Victoria, Dallas Morning News, Western Art Collector, Southwestern Art, Griffin’s work has been shown and awarded across the United States, including at the National Ranching Heritage Museum, the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition, and Coors Western Art, which selected him as its featured artist in 2022.

Griffin’s work is represented by InSight Gallery, Fredericksburg, Texas, and Legacy Galleries, Scottsdale, Arizona.

Griffin and his wife, Lorna, split their time between Dallas, where they raised their three children, Ryan, Elizabeth, and Michael, and Cordillera, Colorado.
