The artist

David Flores "Johnny Cash": 8852 West Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90069
 

David P. Flores enjoys creating art as an urban artist or street artist, and as a painter. He does not note the difference since all it takes is to create. He truly enjoys the street art movement since it allows individuals to speak their opinions out. These opinions can be expressed in any form of art, dance, and poetry. David P. Flores enjoys his freedom and meeting interesting people in every step of his way.
 
David Flores is best known for his self-proclaimed "stained glass" and mosaic style. These images are often famous iconic images and he enjoys participating with a variety of companies to perform his work. Some of these opportunities have led to great collaborations such as working with Shepard Fairey, Stüssy, and Kidrobot.
 
David Flores’s Stained Glass style was developed while he was working at Deluxe Distribution; he was sitting around making comics with Mark Gonzales. Out of nowhere, David Flores began to outline people’s faces, cars, trains, and everything else. From that moment, this idea of interpreting lighting in an illustrative fashion simply stuck. His work has never been influenced directly by other artists because David Flores has always worked alone. Yet, David Flores art is highly influential.
