Accomplished painter and MFA alumnus David DeRosa (CCAD 2014) was recently profiled by Columbus Alive, a weekly arts and culture publication.

DeRosa has exhibited extensively in the United States since receiving his BFA from Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 1997. His most recent works, he told Alive, are inspired by balance.

"There are two sides to the work that I do, the stuff that’s narrative and technical and the work that’s introspective and more conceptual," DeRosa said in the article. "I’m trying to straddle the two places … because I love the work that comes from that aesthetic, but I like the idea of tackling the heavier things.”

DeRosa's paintings are on display through July 5 in Columbus' Short North Arts District at the Waxxpot, 1188 N. High St., Columbus, OH., 43215

DeRosa lives in Westerville, OH.
